Partial characterization of a transposon containing the tet(A) determinant in a clinical isolate of Acinetobacter baumannii.


A genomic library from one clinical isolate of Acinetobacter baumannii was obtained to find genes responsible for tetracycline resistance. Escherichia coli DH5alpha-MDR transformants, selected on Mueller-Hinton agar supplemented with tetracycline 18 mg/L, were thoroughly characterized. In one clone, with an insert of 7,070 bp, it was found that the… (More)
