The difference in the dissemination of these resistant traits may be related to the observation that the vanA gene cluster is often located on a transposon which, in turn, can be a part of a conjugative (transferable) plasmid (45).

This is because the conjugative effect of the monomers is enhanced when the hydrogen atoms on the side chain of acrylate are substituted by fluorine atoms.
ESBLs are encoded on conjugative plasmids, transposons or integrons and these elements are readily spread under selective antibiotic pressure.
This process is largely, although not exclusively, responsible for increasing the incidence of antibiotic-resistant bacteria through various mechanisms, such as transformation by acquisition of naked DNA, transduction by acquisition of DNA through bacteriophages, and conjugation by acquisition of DNA through plasmids or conjugative transposons (3,4).
