Nucleotide sequences specific for Tn1545-like conjugative transposons in pneumococci and staphylococci resistant to tetracycline.

Abstract

The distributions of tet(M) and conjugative transposons related to Tn1545 were studied by hybridization in 47 clinical isolates of Streptococcus pneumoniae resistant to tetracycline. Resistance to tetracycline was always associated with resistance to minocycline and was due to the presence of the tet(M) gene. Association of tet(M) with int-Tn, the gene… (More)
