TitleMolecular characterization of blaESBL-producing Escherichia coli cultured from pig farms in Ireland
Study TypeOther
Abstract Six ESBL-producing E. coli were recovered from fecal samples taken from pigs along with a further isolate from a farrowing house on 38 pig farms in Ireland. Phylogenetic grouping and MLST analyses were carried out. Broth mating assays were used to determine if the ESBL marker could be transferred .. [more]
