Disease relevance of SE2023


High impact information on SE2023

  • The clone pPPM9 was mapped using a variety of restriction enzymes, and a 0.27-kilobase EcoRV-TaqI restriction fragment was shown to be within the chloramphenicol resistance (Cmr) gene by using transposon (Tn1000) mutagenesis [1].
  • The role of S. epidermidis as a reservoir for Cmr plasmids found in S. aureus is discussed [2].
  • DNA-DNA hybridisation indicated that the chloramphenicol acetyltransferase determinant carried by pSK5/pSK102 could be found on other structurally-distinct Cmr plasmids [2].

Associations of SE2023 with chemical compounds


Analytical, diagnostic and therapeutic context of SE2023

  • Southern blot analysis with the gene probes against chromosomal DNA from Cmr strains of C. difficile obtained from five distinct geographical locations revealed that at least two copies of the same chloramphenicol acetyltransferase gene were present for each strain [1].
