OBJECTIVES To analyse the mechanisms responsible for carbapenem resistance in one Acinetobacter baumannii isolate recovered from a patient transferred to Germany from an Egyptian hospital. METHODS PCR and sequencing were used to search for β-lactamase and 16S RNA methylase genes. Multilocus sequence typing was used to determine the sequence type (ST) of the isolate. RESULTS Sequencing of the PCR product obtained using primers for bla(NDM-1) revealed a variant of NDM-1 that had a C to G… CONTINUE READING
