The epidemiological importance of tracing plasmids conferring drug resistance prompted us to develop a PCR method based on replicons (inc/rep PCR) of the major plasmid incompatibility groups among… Expand
Bacteria carry extrachromosomal, self-replicating genetic elements called plasmids. A plasmid is defined as a double-stranded, circular DNA molecule capable of autonomous replication. By definition,… Expand
E. coli ST131 and ST405 and multidrug-resistant IncFII plasmids may determine spread of this lactamase.
Plasmids represent one of the most difficult challenge for counteracting the dissemination of antimicrobial resistance. They contribute to the spread of relevant resistance determinants, promoting… Expand
OBJECTIVES IncF plasmids are frequently encountered in clinical enterobacterial strains associated with the dissemination of relevant antimicrobial resistance and virulence genes. These plasmids are… Expand
BackgroundThe genome of Bacillus anthracis, the etiological agent of anthrax, is highly monomorphic which makes differentiation between strains difficult. A Multiple Locus Variable-number tandem… Expand
ABSTRACT The whole-genome sequence of an epidemic, multidrug-resistant Acinetobacter baumannii strain (strain ACICU) belonging to the European clone II group and carrying the plasmid-mediated… Expand
ABSTRACT Genes encoding extended-spectrum β-lactamase CTX-M-1 were detected in 12 Escherichia coli isolates recovered over a 7-month period from the ceca of healthy poultry in seven districts in… Expand
ABSTRACT We determined the complete nucleotide sequences of three plasmids that encode CTX-M extended-spectrum β-lactamases (ESBLs) in pulsed-field gel electrophoresis-defined United Kingdom variants… Expand
Horizontal transfer of resistance genes is a successful mechanism for the transmission and dissemination of multiple drug resistance among bacterial pathogens. The impact of horizontally transmitted… Expand
