Class 1 integrons have strongly influenced the evolution of multiple antibiotic resistance. Diverse integrons have recently been detected directly in a range of natural environments. In order to characterize the properties of these environmental integrons, we sought to isolate organisms containing integrons from soils, which resulted in the isolation of Pseudomonas stutzeri strain Q. Further isolation efforts targeted at this species resulted in recovery of two other strains (P and BAM). 16S… CONTINUE READING
