MLST typing of Escherichia coli isolates overproducing AmpC {beta}-lactamase.

Abstract : Escherichia coli is the major commensal aerobic bacterium of the digestive tract of humans and animals, but is also the most frequent human bacterial pathogen. As a consequence, resistance mechanisms carried by this species are of particular concern. One of these mechanisms is the overproduction of the chromosomal AmpC β-lactamase, leading to increased MICs of most β-lactams including third-generation cephalosporins. AmpC overproduction is caused by various mutations in the ampC promoter (–42, –32 and –11) increasing homology with the consensus promoter for RNA polymerase,
