Two strains of Enterobacteriaceae producing prodigiosin were isolated from meat in the Sichuan province of China in 2010. The strains were identified by Vitek system, 16S rDNA, rpoB, pfs and luxS genes. Minimum inhibitory concentrations were determined using the broth microdilution method. The two strains were screened for the presence of β-lactamase genes… CONTINUE READING
