Animal and environmental reservoirs of antibiotic resistant Enterococcus faecalis carrying pheromone-responsive plasmids

Research output: Contribution to conferencePoster

Abstract

Pheromone-responsive plasmids are unique to enterococci.These plasmids are characterized by a clumping reaction. Clumping occurs when the plasmid-containing donor cell produces aggregation substance, in response to small peptide pheromones produced by the plasmid-free recipient cell.The environment is increasingly being recognized as a major reservoir of pathogens, virulence genes and antibiotic resistance. Here we describe the characterization of pheromone-responsive plasmids and their host strains from animals and the environment.
Such studies has previously been limited almost exclusively to clinical strains
