Comparative genomics of multidrug-resistant Enterococcus spp. isolated from wastewater treatment plants.

ABSTRACT: BACKGROUND:Wastewater treatment plants (WWTPs) are considered hotspots for the environmental dissemination of antimicrobial resistance (AMR) determinants. Vancomycin-Resistant Enterococcus (VRE) are candidates for gauging the degree of AMR bacteria in wastewater. Enterococcus faecalis and Enterococcus faecium are recognized indicators of fecal contamination in water. Comparative genomics of enterococci isolated from conventional activated sludge (CAS) and biological aerated filter (BAF) WWTPs was conducted. RESULTS:VRE isolates, including E. faecalis (n?=?24), E. faecium (n?=?11), E. casseliflavus (n?=?2) and E. gallinarum (n?=?2) were selected for sequencing based on WWTP source, species and AMR phenotype. The pangenomes of E. faecium and E. faecalis were both open. The genomic fraction related to the mobilome was positively correlated with genome size in E. faecium (p?
