Detection of GES-5-producing multidrug-resistant Pseudomonas aeruginosa in Japan
Identifiers: SRA: DRP004010
Whole Genome Sequencing
A total of 1181 clinical isolates of carbapenem-resistance Pseudomonas aeruginosa were obtained between 2012 and 2015 in 47 prefectures in Japan. The presence of carbapenem resistant genes, including blaGESs, blaIMPs, blaNDMs, blaOXAs and blaVIMs, were determined using PCR and sequence. Of them, 59 isolates harbored blaGES-5. The all 59 isolates were analyzed by next generation sequencer.
