Abstract

High-level resistance to glycopeptides in Enterococcus faecium is associated with an inducible 39-kDa cytoplasmic membrane protein. The present paper shows that such glycopeptide-resistant E. faecium strains can not only be isolated in a definite clinical setting but also from waste water of sewage treatment plants. Nearer characterization of these and of clinical isolates by resistance pattern, biotyping, and genotyping (DNA-fingerprinting with pulsed-field gel electrophoresis) has shown that different glycopeptide-resistant E. faecium strains have been isolated from clinical sources and from waste water.
