Detection of colistin resistance mcr-1 gene in Salmonella enterica serovar Rissen isolated from mussels, Spain, 2012- to 2016.

Detection of colistin resistance mcr-1 gene in Salmonella enterica serovar Rissen isolated from mussels, Spain, 2012- to 2016. Euro Surveill. 2019 Apr;24(16): Authors: Lozano-Leon A, Garcia-Omil C, Dalama J, Rodriguez-Souto R, Martinez-Urtaza J, Gonzalez-Escalona N Abstract Nineteen Salmonella strains were isolated from 5,907 randomly selected mussel samples during a monitoring programme for the presence of Salmonella in shellfish in Galicia, north-west Spain (2012-16). Serovars, sequence type and antimicrobial resistance genes were determined through genome sequencing. Presence of the mcr-1 gene in one strain belonging to serovar Rissen and ST-469 was identified. The mcr-1 gene had not been isolated previously in environmental Salmonella isolated from mussels in Spain. PMID: 31014417 [PubMed - in process]

In addition, we investigated the relationship between AMR in NTS, Vibrio spp. and antimicrobial residue in the same ...

Conclusion: The fluorinated compounds showed, in general, a relatively more potent antibacterial activity than non-fluorinated counterparts. The results indicate that these thiocarbamates and dithiocarbamates could be promising candidates as potential antimicrobial agents.

This study was designed to estimate the population cell density, prevalence, virulence gene signatures and antibiotic resistance of Salmonella serovars from ready-to-eat shrimps. Ready-to-eat (RTE) shrimp samples were obtained from different open markets in Delta and Edo States, Nigeria from November 2016 to October 2017. We employed classical and polymerase chain reaction (PCR) approaches. The mean Salmonella species enumerated from the RTE shrimps ranged from -0.301 to 5.434 log10 cfu/g with 210/1440 (14.58%) of the RTE shrimp samples harboured Salmonella species. After biochemical and PCR approach, the identified isolat...

Conclusions/SignificanceExtensive phylogenetic diversity is evident amongst iNTS disease-associatedS. Enteritidis in Ghana. Antimicrobial resistance profiles differed by clade, highlighting the challenges of devising empirical sepsis guidelines. The detection of fluoroquinolone resistance in phyletically-related poultry and human isolates is of major concern and surveillance and control measures within the region ’s burgeoning poultry industry are required to protect a human population at high risk of iNTS disease.

In this study, comparative genomics approaches were applied to two S. Typhimurium strains, ST1539 and ST1120, isolated from a duck slaughterhouse and a pig farm, respectively, to characterize their virulence and antimicrobial resistance-associated genomic determinants. ST1539 containing a chromosome (4,905,039 bp; 4,403 CDSs) and a plasmid (93,876 bp; 96 CDSs) was phylogenetically distinct from other S. Typhimurium strains such as ST1120 and LT2. Compared to the ST1120 genome (previously deposited in GenBank; CP021909.1 and CP021910.1), ST1539 possesses more virulence determinants, including ST64B prophage, plasmid spv ope...
