Multidrug-resistant genes of aminoglycoside-modifying enzymes and 16S rRNA methylases in Acinetobacter baumannii strains.

We examined the distribution of genes of aminoglycoside-modifying enzymes and 16S rRNA methylases in multidrug-resistant Acinetobacter baumannii to explore the association of these genes with drug resistance. Strains isolated from clinical specimens were screened using an automatic microbial identification system, and 9 aminoglycoside-modifying enzyme and 6… CONTINUE READING
