Abstract

The aim of this study was to characterize the presence of carbapenemase-encoding genes in distinct species of spp. isolated from Brazilian hospitals. Five carbapenem-resistant spp. isolates (two , two and one ) recovered from two distinct hospitals between 2000 and 2016 were included in this study. All of the isolates harboured , which was inserted into In a class 1 integron. Pulsed field gel eletrophoresis analysis showed that both were identical, while the two isolates were considered to be clonally related. In this study, we demonstrated that mobile elements carrying carbapenemase-encoding genes such as In may persist for a long period, allowing their mobilization from to other spp. that are usually susceptible to multiple antimicrobials.
