|Title:||Detection of an unusual van genotype in a vancomycin-resistant Enterococcus faecium hospital isolate||Authors:||Teo, J.W.P.
|Issue Date:||Dec-2011||Citation:||Teo, J.W.P., Krishnan, P., Jureen, R., Lin, R.T.P. (2011-12). Detection of an unusual van genotype in a vancomycin-resistant Enterococcus faecium hospital isolate. Journal of Clinical Microbiology 49 (12) : 4297-4298. ScholarBank@NUS Repository. https://doi.org/10.1128/JCM.05524-11||Abstract:||We highlight the detection of a rare vanM genotype in Enterococcus faecium. This isolate exhibited a VanB phenotype, with high levels of resistance to vancomycin (MIC, >256 mg/liter) and susceptibility to teicoplanin (MIC, 1 mg/liter). It was, however, vanB negative by PCR. Further screening for other van loci revealed the presence of a complete vanM operon. Copyright © 2011, American Society for Microbiology.
