OBJECTIVES The multiresistance plasmid pKP96 from Klebsiella pneumoniae was sequenced completely and analysed concerning its genetic environment and distributing of antimicrobial resistance genes. METHODS The complete sequence of the plasmid was determined using a whole-genome shotgun approach. MICs of 13 antimicrobial agents were determined using Etests.(More)
T cell activation is a well-established model for studying cellular responses to exogenous stimulation. Using strand-specific RNA-seq, we observed that intron retention is prevalent in polyadenylated transcripts in resting CD4(+) T cells and is significantly reduced upon T cell activation. Several lines of evidence suggest that intron-retained transcripts(More)
Acinetobacter baumannii had emerged as an important nosocomial and opportunistic pathogen worldwide. To assess the evolution of colistin resistance in A. baumannii and its effect on bacterial fitness, we exposed five independent colonies of A. baumannii ATCC 17978 to increasing concentrations of colistin in agar (4/5) and liquid media (1/5). Stable(More)
