Genetic characterization of novel class 1 Integrons In0, In1069 and In1287 to In1290, and the inference of In1069-associated integron evolution in Enterobacteriaceae

This study aims to characterize genetically related class 1 integrons In1069, In893 and In1287 to In1290, and to further propose a scheme of stepwise integration or excision of individual gene cassettes (GCs) to generation of these integron variations. Six of 139 non-redundant Enterobacteriaceae strains were studied by bacterial antimicrobial susceptibility… CONTINUE READING
