Abstract

A variety of genetic elements play key role in the dissemination of antimicrobial resistance genes among gram-negative bacteria. Transposons can transfer resistance genes intracellularly, while conjugative plasmids carrying resistance genes can move from one bacterial cell to another. Integrons are genetic elements that can collect several resistance genes… (More)
