Abstract

A total of 31 plasmids, all bearing a gene that encodes a novel, plasmid-mediated Richmond-Sykes class III beta-lactamase designated OHIO-1 and a gene that encodes aminoglycoside 2"-adenyltransferase, have been collected from hospitals in Ohio. By using restriction endonuclease digestion and Southern hybridization, we were able to demonstrate that all these plasmids have a common genetic origin.
