Staphylococcus aureus Carrying mecC Gene in Animals and Urban Wastewater, Spain

Investigación publicada en Emerging Infectious Diseases

1 de mayo de 2014

A new methicillin resistance mechanism gene, a divergent mecA homologue named mecC (formerly mecALGA251), was recently described in Staphylococcus aureus (1). Methicillin-resistant S. aureus (MRSA) isolates carrying mecC have been recovered from humans, ruminants, pets, and other animals such as rats, seals, and guinea pigs (1–3). It has been suggested that mecC-carrying MRSA isolates might not be detected by using MRSA selective media (4). For mecC-carrying S. aureus isolates, cefoxitin MICs of 4–64 mg/L have been demonstrated (1–2,4), values that would normally include susceptible isolates, according to the epidemiologic cutoff value established by the European Committee on Antibiotic Susceptibility Testing (EUCAST; www.eucast.org). mecC-carrying S. aureus isolates have been classified as heteroresistant (5), and MICs can be affected by the drug-susceptibility testing method used (1,5)
