Selection for High-Level Telithromycin Resistance in Staphylococcus aureus Yields Mutants Resulting from an rplB-to-rplV Gene Conversion-Like Event
ANTIMICROBIAL AGENTS AND CHEMOTHERAPY, pp. 1156.0-1158, 2008.
While most Staphylococcus aureus telithromycin-resistant mutants isolated in this study possessed duplications within rplV (encoding ribosomall protein L22), four isolates possessed insertions within rplV that were identical to a portion of the gene rplB (encoding ribosomal protein L2). This novel type of mutation is the result of an appa...More
