Sequences of IMP-4-encoding plasmids
What is it about?
The complete nucleotide sequences of six IMP-4-encoding plasmids recovered from Enterobacteriaceae of wildlife origin were characterized. Sequencing data showed that plasmids of different incompatibility groups (IncM, IncI1, IncF, and nontypeable [including an IncX5_2 and two pPrY2001-like]) carried the blaIMP-4-carrying integrons, In809 or In1460. Most of the plasmids carried mph(A) region, and chrA-like, aac(3)-IId and blaTEM-1b genes. Finally, plasmid analysis revealed the involvement of two different, IS26- and Tn1696-associated, mechanisms in the mobilization of IMP-4-encoding integrons.
