Sorry, no etymologies found.


  • In the present study, we describe a new blaIMP-1-carrying integron that contains a new aminoglycoside resistance gene and its dissemination among genetically unrelated clinical isolates recovered from a Brazilian hospital.

  • This enzyme also promotes the random rearrangement of the resistance genes within the integron.

  • It is actually the antibiotics themselves that trigger the synthesis of the bacterial enzyme that captures the resistance genes and enables their expression in the integron.

  • The order of these genes in the integron determines the degree of priority for their expression: the first are expressed most highly and give the bacteria the corresponding resistance.
