Indication of transposition of a mobile DNA element containing the vat(D) and erm(B) genes in Enterococcus faecium.


ABSTRACT: The vat(D) and erm(B) genes encoding streptogramin resistance in Enterococcus faecium transferred together, and a direct physical link between erm(B) and vat(D) was detected. Both the vat(D) and erm(B) probes hybridized to fragments of different sizes in the donor and transconjugants, which indicated a transposition event.
