Mosaic staphylococcal cassette chromosome mec containing two recombinase loci and a new mec complex, B2


Heusser, R; Ender, M; Berger-Bächi, B; McCallum, N (2007). Mosaic staphylococcal cassette chromosome mec containing two recombinase loci and a new mec complex, B2. Antimicrobial Agents and Chemotherapy, 51(1):390-393.

Abstract

A novel staphylococcal cassette chromosome (SCC) mec from a clinical methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus isolate (ST100/CC5) had a mosaic structure, composed of SCC DNA from several different backgrounds. It harbored two complete ccr loci and a new variant of mec complex B, with DeltamecR1 interrupted by the aminoglycoside resistance transposon Tn4001.
