Prevalence of CRISPR-Cas Systems and Their Possible Association with Antibiotic Resistance in Enterococcus faecalis and Enterococcus faecium Collected from Hospital Wastewater
This study aimed to evaluate the presence of CRISPR-Cas system genes and their possible association with antibiotic resistance patterns of Enterococcus faecalis and Enterococcus faecium species isolated from hospital wastewater (HWW) samples of several hospitals.
This study revealed the higher prevalence of E. faecalis than E. faecium in HWWs. Also, the lack of CRISPR-Cas genes was associated with more antibiotic resistance rates and multidrug resistance in E. faecalis and E. faecium isolates with HWW origin.
