Fitness cost of SCCmec and methicillin resistance levels in Staphylococcus aureus


Ender, Miriam; McCallum, Nadine; Adhikari, Rajan; Berger-Bächi, Brigitte (2004). Fitness cost of SCCmec and methicillin resistance levels in Staphylococcus aureus. Antimicrobial Agents and Chemotherapy, 48(6):2295-2297.

Abstract

Transformation of a type I SCCmec element into Staphylococcus aureus yielded highly oxacillin-resistant transformants with a reduced growth rate. Faster-growing variants could again be selected at the cost of reduced resistance levels, demonstrating an inverse correlation between oxacillin resistance levels and growth rate.
