Variation in structure and location of VanA glycopeptide resistance elements among enterococci from a single patient



Variation in structure and location of VanA glycopeptide resistance elements among enterococci from a single patient



Journal of Clinical Microbiology 37(3): 818-820



Forty-six VanA glycopeptide-resistant enterococci (GRE) from a single patient were investigated for variation in structure and location of VanA resistance elements. Together with identification to species level and pulsed-field gel electrophoresis, these data divided the GRE into 10 groups and subgroups. Combining data in this manner appears helpful when investigating the epidemiology of GRE.
