Abstract

Vancomycin has been the medication of last resort to cure infections caused by Staphylococcus aureus since the increase in the prevalence of methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA). Some strains have developed vancomycin-intermediate resistance, which is generally associated with altered expression of or mutations in some part of the two-component system (TCS), such as GraSR, VraSR, and WalKR.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 4. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 02 March 2017.
All research outputs
#2,371,478
of 9,569,234 outputs
Outputs from BMC Microbiology
#331
of 1,538 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#45,722
of 189,509 outputs
Outputs of similar age from BMC Microbiology
#13
of 48 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 9,569,234 research outputs across all sources so far. This one has received more attention than most of these and is in the 74th percentile.
So far Altmetric has tracked 1,538 research outputs from this source. They receive a mean Attention Score of 3.3. This one has done well, scoring higher than 78% of its peers.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 189,509 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one has done well, scoring higher than 75% of its contemporaries.
We're also able to compare this research output to 48 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has gotten more attention than average, scoring higher than 70% of its contemporaries.
