The normally harmless bacteria, which serve as an indicator of fecal contamination, were resistant to five common antibiotics: chloramphenicol, erythromycin, streptornycin, streptothricin, and kanamycin.
This cassette contains the aadAl, sat2, and dfrAl genes that confer resistance to aminoglycosides, streptothricin, and trimethoprim and was chromosomally integrated adjacent to the glmS gene in these isolates (indicating a single acquisition event).
Nucleotide sequencing identified two distinct gene cassettes, namely, the sat-1 and aadA genes, which code for streptothricin acetyl transferase, and aminoglycosede adenyltransferase, respectively (Figure 5).
The sat-1 gene, which codes for the streptothricin acetyl transferase, was not detected in any other E.
