Insertional activation of cepA leads to high-level beta-lactamase expression in Bacteroides fragilis clinical isolates.
(East Carolina University, 1994-07)
Bacteroides fragilis is an important opportunistic pathogen of humans and is resistant to many drugs commonly used to treat anaerobic infections, including P-lactams. A strain set comprised of B. fragilis isolates producing ...
Molecular and genetic analysis of the Bacteroides uniformis cephalosporinase gene, cblA, encoding the species-specific beta-lactamase.
(East Carolina University, 1994-08)
The gene, cbl, encoding the species-specific, clavulanate-susceptible, endogenous cephalosporinase was cloned from Bacteroides uniforinis WAL-7088. The nucleotide sequence was determined, and the cbl structural gene was ...
Cloning and characterization of the endogenous cephalosporinase gene, cepA, from Bacteroides fragilis reveals a new subgroup of Ambler class A beta-lactamases.
(East Carolina University, 1993-11)
Bacteroides frgiglis CS30 is a clinical isolate resistant to high concentrations of benzylpenicillin and cephaloridine but not to cephamycin or penem antibiotics. beta-Lactam resistance is mediated by a chromosomally encoded ...
