Abstract

Summary

The composite transposon Tn, and a related chromosomal Tn-like element, encode resistance to the aminoglycosides gentamicin, tobramycin and kanamycin (GmTmKm) in Australian strains of . Southern hybridisation analysis of GmTmKm strains isolated from various hospitals in the UK between 1975 and 1985 indicated that they predominantly encoded chromosomal copies of Tn or a Tn-like element. However, a strain isolated in 1985 was found to carry Tn on a plasmid related to pSK1, the prototypical multiresistance plasmid commonly detected in strains from Australian hospitals.
