Naturally competent Acinetobacter baumannii clinical isolate as a convenient model for genetic studies

Abstract

Acinetobacter baumannii A118 was isolated from a patient's blood culture. It is susceptible to several antibiotics, is naturally competent, and supports replication and stable maintenance of four plasmid replicons. A. baumannii A118 took up a fluorophore-labeled oligonucleotide analog. These characteristics make this isolate a convenient model for genetic studies.

Acinetobacter Infections

Acinetobacter infections have become common in hospitalized patients, especially in the intensive care unit setting and are difficult to treat due to their propensity to develop antimicrobial drug resistance. Discover the latest research on Acinetobacter Infections here.

Antifungals

An antifungal, also known as an antimycotic medication, is a pharmaceutical fungicide or fungistatic used to treat and prevent mycosis such as athlete's foot, ringworm, candidiasis, cryptococcal meningitis, and others. Discover the latest research on antifungals here.
