Abstract

(newly named ) is an emerging pathogen in immunodeficient and immunocompetent patients. Most documented cases associated with are frequently catheter-related and exhibit wide-spectrum β-lactam resistance. Misidentification of this pathogen using commercial bacterial identification kits is common. We identified a case of infection associated with cholelithiasis. The genome was sequenced and reconstructed using a Nanopore and Illumina hybrid strategy. A novel divergent from existing OXA members was identified and subsequent analysis revealed its existence in all available genomes, which forms a new phylogenetic subgroup distinct from other OXA clusters. Further analysis demonstrated the presence of the novel in the chromosome of several other species. Our study indicated that chromosomes may be a reservoir of β-lactamases.
