DIM beta-lactamase [AMR Gene Family]

Accession ARO:3004208
DefinitionDIM type beta-lactamases were first identified from a carbapenem-resistant Pseudomonas stutzeri strain isolated from a Dutch patient. Encoded in mobile elements, these MBLs significantly hydrolyze broad-spectrum cephalosporins and carbapenems.
