Association of the strA-strB genes with plasmids and transposons in the present-day bacteria and in bacterial strains from permafrost


Transposons closely related to the streptomycin resistance transposon of modern bacteria, Tn5393, were detected in the bacterial isolates from permafrost resistant to streptomycin. Many transposons studied were located on the medium-size plasmids with a narrow host range. None of the streptomycin-resistant strains isolated from permafrost contained small… (More)
