      This study evaluated the clonal spread of carbapenem-resistant P. aeruginosa producing SPM-1 type metallo-beta-lactamase (MBL), at the university hospital of Florianopolis, Santa Catarina, Brazil, compared to an epidemic ...

    • Molecular characterization of SPM-1, a novel metallo-beta-lactamase isolated in Latin America: report from the SENTRY antimicrobial surveillance programme 

      Toleman, M. A.; Simm, A. M.; Murphy, T. A.; Gales, Ana C. [UNIFESP]; Biedenbach, D. J.; Jones, R. N.; Walsh, T. R. (Oxford Univ Press, 2002-11-01)
      The gene encoding the metallo-beta-lactamase SPM-1 was cloned from a genomic library of Pseudomonas aeruginosa strain 48-1997A. the insert carrying spm-1 possessed a GC content of 47%, indicating that it is of non-Pseudomonas ...
