Sequence Analysis of Enterococcus Faecium Strain 10/96A (VanD4), the Original Vancomycin-Resistant E. Faecium Strain in Brazil.

AbstractEnterococcus faecium strain 10/96A (VanD4) was the first vancomycin-resistant enterococcus (VRE) isolated in Brazil. Subsequent Brazilian VRE strains have all had the VanA phenotype. Multilocus sequence typing showed that strain 10/96A was isolated sporadically, has a unique sequence type (ST 281), and was not the progenitor of the VRE strains isolated from hospital outbreaks in Brazil.
