LP248287-7   Bacterial carbapenem resistance blaGES gene
Extended-spectrum beta-lactamases (ESBL) are enzymes produced by some gram negative bacilli that confer resistance to the majority of beta-lactam antibiotics, include the penicillins, cephalosporins and the monobactam aztreonam. ESBLs are most often plasmid-borne. Specific ESBLs include TEM, SHV, and the CTX-M groups, which are the most clinically prevalent, and VEB, PER, BEL, and GES, which are less common. [PMID: 19246801] -TEM and SHV subtypes are derived from amino acid substitutions, resulting in enzymatic hydrolysis of many beta-lactam antibiotics. -CTX-M genes originate from Kluyvera species. They are separated based on their amino acid sequences into the following groups: CTX-M-1, CTX-M-2, CTX-M-9, CTX-M-8, and CTX-M-25. -VEB, PER, BEL, and GES genes are less common. [Mayo Medical Laboratories] The nomenclature for ESBL genes includes the prefix "bla", which stands for "beta-lactam", followed by the enzyme (ie. blaTEM). Source: Regenstrief LOINC
