Linkage of serum resistance, aerobactin production, and resistance to antimicrobial agents on conjugal plasmids in some strains of Escherichia coli isolated from septic foals.

Abstract

Fifteen isolates of Escherichia coli obtained from the blood and tissues of septic foals had plasmid DNA of size ranging from 2.5 to 93 megadaltons. These isolates grew in normal equine serum (serum resistant), a trait previously documented to be expressed by isolates obtained from blood and tissues of septic foals, but not by isolates obtained from the… (More)
