Full-length nucleotide sequences of mcr-1 harboring plasmids isolated from extended-spectrum β-lactamase (ESBL)- producing Escherichia coli of different origins


Zurfluh, Katrin; Klumpp, Jochen; Nüesch-Inderbinen, Magdalena; Stephan, Roger (2016). Full-length nucleotide sequences of mcr-1 harboring plasmids isolated from extended-spectrum β-lactamase (ESBL)- producing Escherichia coli of different origins. Antimicrobial Agents and Chemotherapy, 60(9):5589-5591.

Abstract

Here, we present the full sequences of three mcr-1-carrying plasmids isolated from extended-spectrum-β-lactamase (ESBL)-producing Escherichia coli The plasmids belong to three different replicon types and are 34,640 bp, 209,401 bp, and 247,885 bp in size. We describe for the first time a composite transposon containing mcr-1 localized on a multidrug-resistant (MDR) IncHI2 plasmid harboring additional determinants of resistance to six different classes of antibiotics, including the ESBL gene blaCTX-M-1, and heavy metal resistance.
