Vancomycin MICs of the resistant mutants of S. aureus ATCC43300 vary based on the susceptibility test methods used
The Journal of Antibiotics, 04/13/2012Zhu YL et al.
The susceptibility for the subcultures of resistant mutants would fall back when the external drug environment disappeared. In comparison with the S. aureus ATCC43300, sequence analysis revealed that there were no mutations in the staphylococcal protein A (spa) sequencing of the resistant mutants. The spa tape is t421 for all isolates.
