Z. Ma, Zhou, L. Q., Wang, H., and Luo, L. P., Investigations on the genomic diversity of OXA from isolated Acinetobacter baumannii, vol. 14, pp. 14711-14716, 2015.

We distinguished the four OXA-type carbapenemase subgroup alleles present in 120 strains of Acinetobacter baumannii by using polymerase chain reaction (PCR) and investigated the distributions of the OXA subgroups in clinically isolated samples. Amplification of the OXA genes blaOXA-23, blaOXA-24, blaOXA-51, and blaOXA-58 was performed by multiplex PCR. Antibiotics susceptibility test was conducted for determine the sensitivity of the A. baumannii to clinical common used antibiotics by Kirby-Bauer method.
