One hundred and seventy-three unrelated Listeria monocytogenes strains isolated from humans, animals, the environment, and food were analyzed for the presence of plasmids.

Among strains from food and the environment, 40% and 29%, respectively, harbored plasmids, whereas only 13% of the strains from humans and animals… CONTINUE READING
