Detection of integron-encoded integrases in environments with moderate anthropogenic impact from Puerto Rico
Integrons are genetic elements with a site-specific recombination system which includes an integrase (IntI) capable of capturing and expressing promoterless, circular DNA molecules known as gene cassettes. Although integrons ...
Probing for clinical integrons and integron-encoded antibiotic resistance genes as molecular Indicators of wastewater-related degradation of subtropical coastal environments
Wastewater discharges comprise the main source of fecal contamination across coastal environments in Puerto Rico. Enteric bacteria from hospital settings are frequently key hosts of integrons, a genetic system encoding ...
