Out of six 3GCR Citrobacter
isolates (obtained from the environmental samples), four could be grouped in 2 clusters and 1 isolate showed a unique banding pattern.
E-coli was the most commonly isolated organism with total no of 20 cases (54.1%) followed by Pseudomonas 6 cases (16.2%), Klebsiella pneumoniae 3 cases (8.1%), Proteus mirabilis 3 cases (8.1%), Citrobacter
freundi 2 cases (5.4%) and the least frequent was Morganella morganii with 1 case (2.7%).

 Genes for Amp-C [beta]-lactamases are commonly found on the chromosomes of the several members of the family Enterobacteriaceae including Enterobacter, Shigella, Providencia, Citrobacter
freundii, Morganella morganii, Serratia marcescens and Escherichia coli.
The KCDC said Citrobacter
freundii, a gram-negative type of bacteria, found in the blood of the three shared the same genome sequence, indicating the same source of infection.
The PCR product was found the size of 1424, 1487 and 1306 bp for Burkholderiacepacia, Citrobacter
feurendii and Serratia marcescens respectively and was purified and sequenced (Applied Biosystems, New Delhi).
AmpC beta-lactamases hydrolyze all the broad spectrum cephalosporins such as cefoxitin, cefotaxime, ceftazidime and ceftriaxone.1 These enzymes are typically present in Gram-negative bacteria which include Escherichia coli, Klebsiella species, Salmonella species, Shigella, Enterobacter species, Citrobacter
species, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Serratia marcescens, Providencia, Proteus mirabilis and Morganella morganii.2
