Prevalence of antimicrobial resistance and resistance genes in faecal Escherichia coli isolates recovered from healthy pets.
Faecal samples of healthy dogs (n=39) and cats (n=36) obtained in Northern Portugal were seeded on Levine agar plates, and two Escherichia coli isolates per sample were recovered (78 of dogs and 66Expand

Prevalence of extended-spectrum beta-lactamase-producing Escherichia coli isolates in faecal samples of broilers.
Seventy-six faecal samples were obtained from broilers at slaughterhouse level in Portugal. Samples were inoculated on cefotaxime-supplemented Levine agar plates. Cefotaxime-resistant EscherichiaExpand

Antimicrobial resistance and the mechanisms implicated in faecal enterococci from healthy humans, poultry and pets in Portugal.
Antimicrobial resistance and the mechanisms implicated were studied in 440 enterococci (227 Enterococcus faecium, 177 Enterococcus faecalis, 32 Enterococcus hirae and 4 Enterococcus durans) recoveredExpand

Mechanisms of antibiotic resistance in Escherichia coli isolates recovered from wild animals.
Seventy-two fecal samples obtained from wild animals in Portugal were sampled on Levine agar plates (non-supplemented with antibiotics), and Escherichia coli isolates were recovered from 56 of themExpand

Detection of multiple-antimicrobial resistance and characterization of the implicated genes in Escherichia coli isolates from foods of animal origin in Tunis.
Phenotypic and genotypic characterization of antimicrobial resistance was conducted for 98 Escherichia coli isolates recovered from 40 food samples of animal origin (poultry, sheep, beef, fish, andExpand

Genetic characterisation of CTX-M-15-producing Klebsiella pneumoniae and Escherichia coli strains isolated from stem cell transplant patients in Tunisia.
Characterisation of extended-spectrum beta-lactamase (ESBL) genes and their genetic environments as well as the presence of integrons were analysed in nine Klebsiella pneumoniae and two EscherichiaExpand

Polymorphisms of the pbp5 gene and correlation with ampicillin resistance in Enterococcus faecium isolates of animal origin.
The C-terminal region of the pbp5 gene was sequenced in 11 ampicillin-resistant and 5 ampicillin-susceptible Enterococcus faecium isolates of animal origin, and compared with a pbp5 referenceExpand

Detection of antimicrobial activities and bacteriocin structural genes in faecal enterococci of wild animals.
The production of antimicrobial activities as well as the presence of bacteriocin structural genes (entA, entB, entP, entQ, cylL, entAS-48, bac31, and entL50A/B) were studied in 140 non-selectedExpand
