Acinetobacter pittii carrying the blaNDM-1 gene is frequently reported in the world recently, however most of the blaNDM-1 genes are located on plasmids. Here we report a multidrug-resistant (MDR) A. pittii isolated in China co-harbouring blaNDM-1, blaOXA-421 and blaAmpC in the genome.Bacterial genomic DNA was extracted using the cetyl trimethylammonium bromide (CTAB) method. Whole-genome sequencing of A. pittii was performed using an Illumina MiSeq system (2×251bp) in combination with PacBio single-molecule real-time (SMRT) sequencing. De novo genome assembly was performed using SPAdes v.3.9.0, A5-miseq v.20150522 and Canu v.1.4, respectively. The genome sequence was analysed by bioinformatics methods.The 4211131-bp genome with 38.99% G+C content displayed several resistance genes, including blaNDM-1, blaOXA-421 and blaAmpC. Meanwhile, 4426 protein-coding sequences were predicted within the genome.The genome sequence reported here can be compared with the already published genomes of NDM-1-producing isolates. These data might facilitate further understanding of the specific genomic feature of MDR A. pittii in China. Copyright © 2018 International Society for Chemotherapy of Infection and Cancer.
