Plasmid profiles as an epidemiological marker in Salmonella enterica serovar berta infections. Comparison of isolates obtained from humans and poultry.

Abstract

Plasmid profiles of 674 Salmonella berta strains isolated in the period 1985-1989 from 674 cases of human infections were recorded. Five hundred and eighty-nine of the strains examined (87.4%) contained plasmids and the mean number of plasmids was 1.8 per strain. Sixteen different plasmid sizes were recognized, 13 of which had also been reported from S… (More)
