The Salmonella enterica subsp. enterica serovar Newport str. SL317 whole genome shotgun (WGS) project has the project accession ABEW00000000. This version of the project (01) has the accession number ABEW01000000, and consists of sequences ABEW01000001-ABEW01000063.
S. Newport is prevalent in many geographic regions. Outbreak investigations and targeted studies have identified dairy cattle as the main reservoir of S. Newport. Antimicrobial resistance (Newport MDR-AmpC) is particularly problematic in this serotype, where the prevalence of Newport MDR-AmpC among S. Newport isolates from humans in the United States increased from 0% during 1996-1997 to 26% in 2001. MDR strains of S. Newport have been recorded as resistant to ampicillin, chloramphenicol, streptomycin, sulphonamides and tetracycline (ACSSuT) and many of these strains show intermediate or full resistance to third-generation cephalosporins, kanamycin, potentiated sulphonamides, and gentamicin. Two distinct evolutionary lineages exist in this serotype, and strain SL317 is a S. Newport isolate in the antibiotic susceptible lineage.
Annotation was added to the contigs in August 2008.
