Abstract

Alignment of DNA sequences found upstream of aphA6 and all blaNDM-1 genes displays 100% identity. This identity continues 19 bp into the blaNDM-1 gene such that the first 6 amino acids of aphA6 and blaNDM-1 are the same. Furthermore, the percent GC content (GC%) of aphA6 is considerably lower than that of blaNDM-1 and the GC% within the blaNDM-1 structural gene changes dramatically after the first 19 bp. This is unequivocal evidence that blaNDM-1 is a chimera.
