Abstract: Objective To investigate resistant mechanisms of a pandrug-resistant Acinetobacter baumannii (js01) to β-1actams.Methods Strain js01 isolated from sputum sample of an inpatient from Ningbo First Municipal Hospital in December 2011 was confirmed by PCR amplifying and sequencing of gyrA and parC,and aligning with BLASTn.Thirty-three kinds of β-lactamase genes ( 13 kinds of class A,10kinds of class B,2 kinds of class C,8 kinds of class D),linkage detection of insertion sequences and β-lactamase genes,as well as outer membrane porin gene carO were analyzed by PCR.Genes encoding PBPI A were divided into three fragments,PCR amplified and bidirectional sequenced,and ligated to the full-length gene.Results Four kinds of β-lactamase genes were positive in js01:TEM-I,ADC-30, OXA-23 and OXA-66.Linkage detection of insertion sequences and β-lactamase genes showed that ISabal-ADC-30 and ISabal-OXA-23 were positive. When compared with sensitive strain (SDF) of Acinetobacter baumannii,sense mutations were found in carO gene of js01,and identity of amino acid sequence of carO gene between js01 and SDF was 76.0% (189/249),and differences owed to loss of 3 amino acids.Sense mutations were also found in genes encoding PBP1A of js01,and identity of amino acid sequence of genes encoding PBP1A between js01 and SDF was 99.6% ( 848/851 ),and differences owed to variations of 3amino acids.However,compared with three-dimensional structure of PBP1 A of SDF,PBP1 A of js01 lost 2helixes.Conclusion In strain js01,mutations of housekeeping genes ( genes encoding PBP1A and CarO),and genes producing β-lactamase mediated by mobile genetic elements,may play a key role in resistance to β-lactams.
