abstract
This study will examine three different integrons (1.0,1.2, and 1.8 kb) demonstrated to be present in multi-drug resistant Salmonella Newport isolates. In a preceding study on multi-drug resistant Salmonella enterica serovar Newport isolates demonstrated the presence of at least three different integrons. It is hypothesized that these integrons may play a role in antimicrobial resistance. Our methods for analyzing this will initially involve cloning each of these integrons into expression vectors. Phenotypically, resistance profiles for each integron will be established individually and then transformed into non-resistant bacteria separately and in combination to demonstrate similar resistance profiles. Genotypically, each integron will be sequenced and analyzed through GenBank. This research may lead to characterization of potential mechanisms of antimicrobial resistance.
