Mosaic tetracycline resistance genes comprising tet(O), tet(W), and tet(32) sequences were abundant in DNA extracted from pig and human fecal samples, accounting for 78% (50/64) and 46% (37/80) of genes amplified with a tet(O) primer set, respectively, in two samples. The nonmosaic tet(32) gene was isolated from a human saliva bacterium.
