Rhodococcus equi is an emerging opportunistic pathogen of human immunodeficiency virus-infected patients. However, little is known about the characteristics of R. equi isolates from humans. This study characterized the plasmid content, expression of a virulence-associated antigen, and mouse virulence of 19 R. equi isolates from patients with and without AIDS. EcoRI digestion patterns and Southern, Western, and virulence analyses of these isolates with cryptic plasmids allowed definition of a… CONTINUE READING
