Two ORFs with similarity to the enteric bacteria acriflavin-resistance proteins AcrA (RWLH04551) and AcrB (RWLH04550), which form a multidrug efflux system involved in protecting against hydrophobic inhibitors, such as antibiotics, detergents, disinfectants or dyes, were identified.

ORPB identifies shigellosis clusters for inclusion in this database in 3 ways: 1) when CDC's PulseNet observes a Shigella PFGE pattern approximately twice as often as baseline and in >1 US state or territory during a 60-day period, PulseNet assigns a cluster code to that pattern; 2) state health departments can choose to contact CDC about ongoing single-state or multistate clusters; 3) since 2014, CDC also has used data from the National Antimicrobial Resistance Monitoring System for Enteric Bacteria (NARMS), which strives to test every 20th Shigella isolate nationally and 3 representative isolates from every shigellosis outbreak, to identify isolates harboring resistance to clinically important antimicrobials (22,23).
