Detection of two groups of 25.2 MDa Tet M plasmids by polymerase chain reaction of the downstream region.

Forty-four Neisseria gonorrhoeae, 12 N. meningitidis, four Kingella denitrificans and one Eikenella corrodens carrying 25.2 MDa Tet M plasmids were analysed using polymerase chain reaction (PCR) to the downstream region of the incomplete Tet M transposon. From each isolate, one of two different PCR fragments of approximately 700 or 1600 bp were obtained… (More)
