High-level mupirocin resistance in coagulase-negative staphylococci isolated from patients undergoing peritoneal dialysis was investigated by transfer of the resistance determinants, usually in the form of a plasmid, to Staphylococcus aureus strains, cleavage of the plasmid by restriction endonuclease and hybridisation with a probe comprising a 4.05 kb EcoRI fragment of a plasmid from a S. aureus strain. In most instances the mupirocin-resistant staphylococci isolated from each patient were… CONTINUE READING
