Table 3 Distribution of antibiotic resistances in ST40 E. faecalis isolates

From: Comprehensive molecular, genomic and phenotypic analysis of a major clone of Enterococcus faecalis MLST ST40

Antibiotic resistance Phenotype [%] Resistance gene Genotype [%]
Vancomycin (VanA-type) 2.4 (1/42) vanA 2.4 (1/42)
Erythromycin 21.4 (9/42) erm(B) 21.4 (9/42)
Tetracycline 81.0 (34/42) tet(M) 81.0 (34/42)
Streptomycin (high-level) 31.0 (13/42) aadE 33.3 (14/42)
Gentamicin (high-level) 2.4 (1/42) aac6′-aph2” 0 (0/42)
  1. Broth microdilution assay was used to determine phenotypic antibiotic susceptibilities. Resistance genes were determined by PCR.
