The multiresistance gene cfr was identified for the first time in streptococci, namely in the porcine Streptococcus suis isolate S10. The cfr gene was detected on the ∼100 kb plasmid pStrcfr, where it was bracketed by two copies of the novel insertion sequence ISEnfa5, located in the same orientation. The detection of a cfr- and ISEnfa5-containing amplicon by inverse PCR suggests that ISEnfa5 may play a role in the dissemination of cfr.
