Chinese hamster ovary (CHO) cells are the predominant cell factory for the production of recombinant therapeutic proteins. Nevertheless, the lack in publicly available sequence information is(More)
Ten different antibiotic resistance plasmids conferring high-level erythromycin resistance were isolated from an activated sludge bacterial community of a wastewater treatment plant by applying a(More)
To detect plasmid-borne antibiotic-resistance genes in wastewater treatment plant (WWTP) bacteria, 192 resistance-gene-specific PCR primer pairs were designed and synthesized. Subsequent PCR analyses(More)
To analyse the significance of conjugative broad-host-range IncP-1alpha plasmids for the spread of antibiotic resistance determinants in waste-water treatment plants we isolated and characterised(More)
The role of a municipal wastewater treatment plant as a reservoir for bacteria carrying antibiotic resistance plasmids was analysed. Altogether, ninety-seven different multiresistance plasmids were(More)
