Gene Sequencing for Routine Verification of Pyrazinamide Resistance in Mycobacterium tuberculosis: A Role for pncA but Not rpsA
Journal of Clinical Microbiology, 08/16/2012
Alexander DC et al. – Here, authors evaluate targeted gene sequencing as a supplement to phenotypic PZA susceptibility testing of Mycobacterium tuberculosis. Routine sequencing of pncA, but not rpsA, is effective for verification of PZA susceptibility results.
