FURLAN, João Pedro Rueda; PITONDO-SILVA, André  and  STEHLING, Eliana Guedes. Detection of blaNDM-1 in Stenotrophomonas maltophilia isolated from Brazilian soil. Mem. Inst. Oswaldo Cruz [online]. 2018, vol.113, n.6, e170558.  Epub May 14, 2018. ISSN 0074-0276.

This study reports the presence of the blaNDM-1 gene in an isolate of Stenotrophomonas maltophilia obtained from a Brazilian soil, inside an IncA/C plasmid with ~ 45 Kb. To the best of our knowledge, this is the second report in the world and the first in Brazil of NDM-producing bacterium isolated from soil.

Keywords : blaNDM-1; soil; Stenotrophomonas maltophilia; IncA/C.
