In vivo andin vitro cloning and phenotype characterization of tellurite resistance determinant conferred by plasmid pTE53 of a clinical isolate ofEscherichia coli

Abstract

A determinant encoding resistance against potassium tellurite (Ter) was discovered in a clinical isolate ofEscherichia coli strain KL53. The strain formed typical black colonies on solid LB medium with tellurite. The determinant was located on a large conjugative plasmid designated pTE53. Electron-dense particles were observed in cells harboring pTE53 by… (More)
