[…] tion using Subsystem Technology server (RAST []).Plasmid replicons were detected using PlasmidFinder version 1.3, and incompatibility group F (IncF) subtyping was performed using pMLST version 1.4 (). blaNDM-5 was detected on a 110,959-bp plasmid (pAMA1167-NDM-5) belonging to IncF and pMLST type [F1:A1:B49]. Besides blaNDM-5, 16 other resistance genes were detected on pAMA1167 […]


Extended spectrum beta lactamase (ESBL) producing Escherichia coli and Acinetobacter baumannii among horses entering a veterinary teaching hospital: The contemporary 'Trojan Horse'

PLoS One
PMCID: 5790241
PMID: 29381714
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pone.0191873

[…] mid replicon detection revealed a high variety of different types of plasmids including Inc/Rep types IncFIA/B and IncFII, which are commonly found in ESBL-producing E. coli. One IncFIA plasmid type (pMLST type F-:A8:B-) was present in 15 of the 41 tested E. coli assigned to 13 different STs, originating from 15 different animals. However, the genetic makeup of resistance genes differed between th […]


In Situ Analyses Directly in Diarrheal Stool Reveal Large Variations in Bacterial Load and Active Toxin Expression of Enterotoxigenic Escherichia coli and Vibrio cholerae
