Description: By studying the -lactamase content of several Acinetobacter spp. isolates from Argentina, producing the expanded-spectrum -lactamases (ESBL) VEB-1a or PER-2, a novel Ambler class A -lactamase gene was identified. It encoded the narrow-spectrum -lactamase SCO-1, whose activity was inhibited by clavulanic acid. SCO-1 hydrolyzes penicillins at a high level and cephalosporins and carbapenems at a very low level. -Lactamase SCO-1 was identified from unrelated VEB-1a-positive or PER-2-positive Acinetobacter spp. isolates recovered from three hospitals. The blaSCO-1 gene was apparently located on a plasmid of ca. 150 kb from all cases but was not associated with any ESBL-encoding gene. The G C content of the blaSCO gene was 52%, a value that does not correspond to that of the A. baumannii genome (39%). -Lactamase SCO-1 shares 47% amino acid identity with CARB-5 and ca. 40% with the enzymes TEM, SHV, and CTX-M. A gene encoding a putative resolvase was identified downstream of the blaSCO-1 gene, but its precise way of acquisition remains to be determined.
