    Abstract

    bla OXA-134 genes and variants were sought in 21 species of Acinetobacter and found in A. lwoffii, genomic species 9 (regarded as synonyms), and A. schindleri. Sequencing revealed a 9-bp deletion in the gene in the type strain of genomic species 9 (ATCC 9957) relative to the gene in the type strain of A. lwoffii (ATCC 15309). Primers based on the gene without the deletion gave specific amplification of 29 of 30 clinical isolates of A. lwoffii/genomic species 9.
