[High-level tetracycline-resistance of Neisseria gonorrhoeae].


High level tetracycline resistance of Neisseria gonorrhoeae is mediated by a 25.2-MD plasmid and is characterized by a minimal inhibitory concentration of 16 micrograms/ml or more. The 25.2-MD plasmid originated through the insertion of the streptococcal tetM determinant into the 24.5-MD transfer plasmid of N. gonorrhoeae. In the present study the… (More)
