<div><p>Gram-negative bacteria, such as <i>Acinetobacter baumannii</i>, are an increasing burden in hospitals worldwide with an alarming spread of multi-drug resistant (MDR) strains. Herein, we compared a type strain (ATCC17978), a non-clinical isolate (DSM30011) and MDR strains of <i>A</i>. <i>baumannii</i> implicated in hospital outbreaks (Ab242, Ab244 and Ab825), revealing distinct patterns of type VI secretion system (T6SS) functionality. The T6SS genomic locus is present and was actively transcribed in all of the above strains. However, only the <i>A</i>. <i>baumannii</i> DSM30011 strain was capable of killing <i>Escherichia coli</i> in a T6SS-dependent man...
