The same aminoglycoside 2"-adenylyltransferase was isolated from four gram-negative species which were among a random group of gentamicin-resistant isolates from the same hospital. The enzyme was partially purified from a crude extract which also contained a second modifying enzyme identified as APH(3')-I. The substrate range of the new aminoglycoside(More)
Multi-resistant Enterobacteriaceae and Pseudomonas isolated from clinical specimens at RNS were characterized for resistance phenotype and transferred resistant phenotype. These isolates were obtained over a two year period from different specimens and from patients with varying clinical syndromes. Twenty-six of these isolates were further characterized(More)
Most applications of affinity chromatography employ the cyanogen bromide activation scheme first devised by Axèn et al. (1967). Porath and Sunberg (1972) reported an alternative procedure in which phloroglucinol and divinylsulphone are used in activating reactions. The advantages of this scheme and parameters relevant to the activating reactions are(More)
