Epidemiological survey of penicillinase producing neisseria gonorrhoeae 2. characterization of plasmids from 66 strains isolated in france may 1979 march 1983

Penicillinase producing Neisseria gonorrhoeae PPNG (66 strains) were examined for the presence of plasmids coding for .beta.-lactamase. The 3.2 Mdal plasmid was present in 27/66 (41%) of strains. The 4.5 Mdal plasmid was present in 30/66 (45%) of strains. The association 2.6 Mdal 4.5 Mdal plasmids were only present in 9/66 (13.6%) of strains. The cryptic plasmid of 2.6 Mdal was always present.
