PSZ beta-lactamase [AMR Gene Family]

Accession ARO:3007647
DefinitionPSZ beta-lactamases are a novel AmpC enzyme gene family, which was found on a strain of Pantoea endophytica isolated from a rabbit in a livestock farm in China. It shows resistance to penicillins and several cephalosporins, and shares the highest amino acid similarity with the function-characterized AmpC enzyme ERH-1.
