Mobile plasmid-encoded elements are DNA segments that are transferred for horizontal gene transfer and that confer adaptive proprieties, as well as virulence and antibiotic and heavy metal resistance to bacteria. The conjugative plasmid pUM505, isolated from a clinical strain of Pseudomonas aeruginosa, possesses a putative 31.292 kb mobile element (denominated Mpe: Mobile plasmid- encoded element) that, in addition to possessing chr genes that confer chromate resistance to Pseudomonas, contains… Expand
