Nine tetracycline (Tc)-resistant clinical isolates of Enterococcus faecium were screened for plasmid content using agarose gel electrophoresis. pKQ10, a 1.9-kb plasmid carrying a novel Tc resistance determinant, was isolated from one of the isolates. The nucleotide sequence of this plasmid revealed an open reading frame corresponding to an 11.8-kDa protein and containing 105 amino acid residues. There was some limited similarity between this protein and tet(M), tet(O), tet(Q), tet(S), tetB(P… CONTINUE READING
