Part Description

LP64707-0   Bacterial carbapenem resistance blaKPC gene
Non-susceptibility to carbapenems in gram-negative bacilli by means of the enzyme KPC (Klebsiella pneumoniae carbapenemase) is becoming more common. The gene beta-lactamase KPC (bla(KPC)) encodes KPC enzyme production, which in turn hydrolyzes and inactivates carbapenem antibiotics. KPC enzymes are a class A beta lactamases with several variants (KPC-2, KPC-3, etc) known. Various methods are used to detect specific portions of genes encoding KPC production. Carbapenemases can also be detected by other methods, including the modified Hodge test to detect carbapenemase production in isolates and minimum inhibitory concentration (MIC) to determine level of resistance.
