OBJECTIVES To determine the context and location of the bla(OXA-23) carbapenem-resistance gene and the structure of the resistance island in the chromosomal comM gene in a representative Australian global clone 2 (GC2) Acinetobacter baumannii isolate. METHODS Long-range PCR was used to link genes and determine the organization of the resistance island. PCR amplicons were sequenced, and bioinformatic analysis identified features. Multilocus sequence typing (MLST) was performed. RESULTS The… CONTINUE READING
