A new kanamycin-resistance gene, detected in Acinetobacter baumannii and designated aphA-6, was sequenced. It specifies a 30319 Dalton 3'-aminoglycoside phosphotransferase (APH(3'] that mediates resistance to kanamycin and structurally related aminoglycosides, including amikacin. Pairwise comparisons of the six types of APH(3') so far detected in human pathogens (types I, II, III and VI) and in amino-glycoside-producing microorganisms (types IV and V), confirm that APH(3') enzymes have diverged… CONTINUE READING
