Characterization of a cfr-carrying plasmid from porcine Escherichia coli that closely resembles plasmid pEA3 from the plant pathogen Erwinia amylovora

Zhang, R.; Sun, B.; Wang, Y.; Lei, L.; Schwarz, Stefan GND; Wu, C.

The multiresistance gene cfr was found in two porcine E. coli isolates, one harboring it on the conjugative 33,885-bp plasmid pFSEC-01, the other in the chromosomal DNA. Sequence analysis of pFSEC-01 revealed that a 6769-bp fragment containing the cfr gene bracketed by two IS26 elements was inserted into a plasmid closely related to pEA3 from the plant pathogen Erwinia amylovora, suggesting pFSEC-01 may be transferred between different bacterial genera of both animal and plant origin.
