    ..The interaction of SCO-1 with beta-lactams was similar to that of the CARB-type enzymes. Also, SCO-1 exhibited a 51% amino acid sequence identity with the RTG subgroup of chromosomal carbenicillinases (RTG-1, CARB-5, and CARB-8). ..

    ..It was found that the Tn2555 family elements are flanked by directly repeated IS286. One of them (Tn2555.3) contains an additional copy of IS286 in its internal region. ..

    ..Target site duplication at both ends of the transposon indicated that the integron likely was inserted into the plasmid through a transpositional process. This is the first description of an integron located on a composite transposon...

    ..Furthermore, a new insertion sequence, IS3000, has been found in In60. PCR analysis indicates that integron In60 is present in 33 of 34 nonclonal enterobacterial isolates carrying the putative beta-lactamase CTX-M-9...
