Abstract

SUMMARY

Of 1099 isolates of during 1985–86, 11 (1%) were resistant to three or more antibiotics. Strain S4659/85, a multiresistant isolate, lacked autonomous R plasmids but showed incompatibility with H2 plasmids and donated resistance determinants in matings. Transconjugants acquired incomplete R plasmids which integrated stably into a specific chromosomal site. These data provide an insight into the behaviour of R plasmids in .
