J Bacteriol. 2011 May;193(9):2361-2. doi: 10.1128/JB.00244-11. Epub 2011 Mar 11.


Acinetobacter baumannii has emerged as a significant nosocomial pathogen worldwide. The increasing trend of carbapenem and fluoroquinolone resistance in A. baumannii severely limits the usage of therapeutic antimicrobial agents. Here we report the genome sequence of a multidrug-resistant A. baumannii strain, TCDC-AB0715, harboring both bla(OXA-23) and bla(OXA-66).
