Abstract

Mechanisms of tetracycline resistance were investigated in two recent isolates from food, with 52P tet as a control. Tetracycline resistance was transferred conjugatively from all three strains to and from one isolate and the control to . Molecular analysis demonstrated a chromosomal location for the determinant, which was identified as M in all cases. These studies are the first to show that from food could be a source of tetracycline resistance genes able to spread to other micro-organisms.
