There are no studies evaluating the mechanisms driving linezolid resistance in nontuberculous mycobacteria. The novel mutations G2599A and A2137T in the 23S rRNA gene and mutations A439G and G443A in the rplD gene associated with linezolid resistance were identified in linezolid-resistant M. avium complex isolates.
