Abstract

Chromosomal beta-lactamase genes (bla(KLUY)) from six Kluyvera georgiana strains isolated in Guyana were cloned and expressed in Escherichia coli. KLUY-1 exhibited 100% amino acid identity with the extended-spectrum beta-lactamase CTX-M-14. We also show that a 2.7-kb Kluyvera chromosomal region exhibits 99% nucleotide identity to a portion of In60 that includes bla(CTX-M-9).
