detection of mecc-positive staphylococcus aureus (cc130-mrsa-xi) in diseased european hedgehogs (erinaceus europaeus) in sweden.recently, a novel mec gene conferring beta-lactam resistance in staphylococcus aureus has been discovered. this gene, mecc, is situated on a sccmec xi element that has to date been identified in clonal complexes 49, 130, 425, 599 and 1943. some of the currently known isolates have been identified from animals. this, and observations of meca alleles that do not confer beta-lactam resistance, indicate that mec genes might have a reservoir in staphylococcus species from animals. thus it is importan ...201323776626
