Acinetobacter sp. DR1

Names Acinetobacter sp. DR1
Accession numbers NC_014259
Background Acinetobacter spp. Play a significant role in cause of various nosocomial infections. These include bacteremia, urinary tract infection, and secondary meningitis, but they are predominantly associated with nosocomial pneumonia. Treatment of these diseases is becoming increasingly difficult because of the rising resistance of these bacteria to antibiotics. Various mechanisms of antibiotic resistance along with significant capacity to survive long-term in a hospital environment and ease of transmission between patients further hinder treatment.Acinetobacter spp. are short, plump, gram-negative rods that normally form smooth, sometimes mucoid, pale yellow to grey-white colonies on solid media.
