Characterization of blaSHV genes on plasmids from E. coli and Salmonella of Canadian food animals (2006-2007).

Pouget JG, Coutinho FJ, Reid-Smith RJ, Boerlin P.


bla(SHV) genes from Escherichia coli and Salmonella enterica isolates from chicken (n = 19) and pork (n = 1) were identified as bla(SHV-2) (n = 5) or bla(SHV-2a) (n = 15). Eighteen were on plasmids of the incI1 (n = 15), incP (n = 2), and incFIB (n = 1) incompatibility groups. These plasmids were all transferable by conjugation between E. coli and S. enterica.
