Objectives This study investigated the presence of the crpP gene, which encodes an enzymatic mechanism of antibiotic phosphorylation that decreases ciprofloxacin susceptibility, in ESBL-producing clinical isolates and its effect in transconjugants. Methods A collection of 77 ESBL-producing clinical isolates of Enterobacteriaceae and 68 ESBL-producing transconjugants that had acquired plasmids from clinical isolates from hospitals in Mexico obtained from 1988 to 2012 was employed. The crpP… Expand
