Abstract

Thirty cultures of 47:r:253 (Ar 23:24-25) were isolated over 7 months from the faeces of a captive reptile. All were unusual in their inability to produce a positive -nitrophenyl-β-D-galactosidase reaction, and in their ability to ferment sucrose. These carried a plasmid having a molecular mass of 72 megadaltons which specified tetracycline resistance and a plasmid of 5 megadaltons which coded for the ability to ferment sucrose. The small size of this sucrose plasmid clearly distinguishes it from others which have been reported.
