1 These three strains produced two beta-lactamases with pIs of 5.4 (TEM-1) and 7.6. beta-Lactamase assays revealed that the pI 7.6 enzyme hydrolyzed cefotaxime faster (at a relative hydrolysis rate of 30% compared with that of benzylpenicillin) than either ceftazidime or aztreonam (relative hydrolysis rates of 13 and 3.3%, respectively).
