Transferable drug resistance (R(+)-factor) was detected in % Escherichia coli (E. coli), 60% Klebsiella, % Proteus and 50% Citrobacter strains. By using a resistance transfer factor (RTF) mobilizing strain, resistance factors were transferred from 3 (%) out of 26 non-autotransferable by:   Antibiotic-resistant enteric bacteria (Escherichia coli, Klebsiella-Aerobacter-Serratia, Salmonella, and Shigella) can transfer resistance to sensitive bacteria during bacterial conjugation (mating).The genetic element, responsible for both mating and resistance, is extrachromosomal deoxyribonucleic acid, known as an R : Theodore C.

  This book presents a thorough and authoritative overview of the multifaceted field of antibiotic science – offering guidance to translate research into tools for prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of infectious diseases. Provides readers with knowledge about the broad field of drug resistance.

Such plasmids, termed drug-resistance (R) factors, generally also specify the formation of sex pili, filamentous appendages on the cell surface. These promote bacterial conjugation, and hence permit the transfer of a copy of the plasmid from the resistant organism to one which may previously have been by: 4.
