Screening for resistance encoding integrons in isolates of Enterococci
(Master thesis; Mastergradsoppgave, 2013-06-03)
BACKGROUND: Integrons are bacterial genetic elements, working as assembly platforms, by incorporating gene cassettes (GCs) in the bacterial genome. 130 GCs providing antimicrobial resistance to most classes of antibiotics have been described, and most of them are associated with the class 1 integrons. Class 1 integrons are widespread among clinically important Gram-negatives, but are rare in gram ...
