Detection of mobile genetic elements (ISEcpl, IS26, ORF513, Sui-1-type integrons) was performed by PCR as described previously (7,12).
Topics include the development of new antibiotics, the prevalence of plasmids and other mobile genetic elements in clinically important drug-resistant bacteria, genetic and chemical effectors in the regulation of efflux pumps in Enterobacteriaceae, biofilms and their relation to multi-resistance and persistence, options for infections caused by extended-spectrum beta-lactamase producers, monitoring antimicrobial resistance, predicting the evolution and emergence of new antibiotic resistance genes, mathematical modeling in the ecology and economics of cycling antibiotics, and the social context of drug discovery and safety testing.
PROREST technology copies the promoters and places them into mobile genetic elements, called retrotransposons.
Vancomycin-resistant enterococci (VRE) in European farms were initially associated with the intensive use of avoparcin; however, the persistence of VRE in food animal environments after years of avoparcin withdrawal indicates that coselection by further antimicrobial or other agents, increased fitness of strains, and mobile genetic elements cannot be ruled out (1-3).
According to a NTC spokesperson, synthetic retrotransposon vectors contain gene sequences derived from mobile genetic elements (VL30s) that are transmitted by standard retrovirus particles.
The structure of these genetic environments implied that the genes for these 16S rRNA methylases are mediated by mobile genetic elements carried by transferable large plasmids (7,8,10).
Retrotransposons are cellular mobile genetic elements that have genomes similar to the retroviruses.
