Molecular analysis of Tn1546 in vanA-containing Enterococcus spp. isolated from humans and poultry



Molecular analysis of Tn1546 in vanA-containing Enterococcus spp. isolated from humans and poultry



Antimicrobial Agents and ChemoTherapy 44(9): 2588-2589



TN1546 elements from 43 vanA-containing isolates of different enterococcal species with diverse pulsed-field gel electrophoresis (PFGE) patterns were analysed: 30 Enterococcus faecium isolates, 7 Enterococcus durans isolates, 5 E. hirae isolates and 1 E. faecalis isolate, all of chicken or human origin.
