Abstract

Summary: TK21 possesses inducible ribosomal RNA methylase activity that confers high-level resistance to lincomycin and lower levels of resistance to certain macrolides. The methylase gene (designated ) is inducible by erythromycin and other macrolides and also by celesticetin (a lincosamide) but not by lincomycin. The enzyme monomethylates the -amino group of adenosine at position 2058 within 23S-like ribosomal RNA.
