Antimicrobial resistance plasmids containing the traT gene confer resistance to serum bactericidal activity upon some laboratory strains of Escherichia coli. We have examined the DNA of Enterobacteriaceae from human extraintestinal infections to determine the frequency of traT-like genes. DNA sequences homologous with traT were found among 58% of… CONTINUE READING
