A little guide for advanced search:

  • Tip 1. You can use quotes "" to search for an exact expression.
    Example: "cell division"
  • Tip 2. You can use + symbol to restrict results containing all words.
    Example: +cell +stem
  • Tip 3. You can use + and - symbols to force inclusion or exclusion of specific words.
    Example: +cell -stem
e.g. searching for members in projects tagged cancer

The spread of ESBL-producing Enterobacteriaceae among food animals/products has raised concerns about their possible transmission through the food chain. We aimed to characterize piggeries (pigs, piggery environments) as reservoirs of TEM-52- and CTX-M-encoding plasmids and clones.Forty-three samples from five Portuguese intensive production farms were studied (2006-07). Twenty-two ESBL-producing (13 TEM-52, 6 CTX-M-32, 3 CTX-M-1) Escherichia coli isolates from healthy pigs, feed and liquid manure were further characterized. Standard methods were used for clonal (PFGE, MLST) and plasmid (S1-PFGE, replicon typing, pMLST, RFLP) analysis. PCR and sequencing were used for analysis of blaCTX-M genetic context and plasmid-mediated quinolone resistance genes.TEM-52 (n = 13/22; 59%), CTX-M-32 (n = 6/22; 27%) and CTX-M-1 (n = 3/22; 14%) were identified in feed (36%), swine faeces (36%), swine hide (9%) and liquid manure (18%) at different farms. Diverse phylogenetic groups and clones were identified among TEM-52 (7 A, 3 B1, 2 B2, 1 D; 8 clones)-producing, CTX-M-1 (1 A, 1 B1, 1 D; 3 clones)-producing and CTX-M-32 (4 A, 2 B1; 4 clones)-producing isolates. However, the ST10 clonal complex was frequent among TEM-52 (n = 6) and CTX-M-32 (n = 3) producers. blaTEM-52 and blaCTX-M-1/-32 genes were identified within epidemic IncI1/ST3 and IncN/ST1 plasmid variants, respectively.We report for the first time a piggery reservoir for blaTEM-52. The spread of blaTEM-52 and blaCTX-M-1/-32 within and/or between different piggeries was mostly associated with epidemic plasmids and clones previously identified in humans and other animal hosts in different EU countries, highlighting possible distribution along the food chain.
