Molecular characterization of Escherichia coli isolates from the environment

Abstract

Bacterial resistance is a frequent problem in the hospital environment. Increased resistance among members of the Enterobacteriaceae family has resulted in the emergence of multiresistant species, which represent a major public health problem. Among the enterobacteria most commonly reported in hospital infections are Escherichia coli, which belongs to the commensal microbiota and may act as an opportunistic pathogen, especially in immunocompromised patients. Different classes of antimicrobials can be used to treat infections caused by this pathogen, including the classes of ²-lactams, quinolones and fluoroquinolones, tetracyclines, aminoglycosides, folate and polymyxin inhibitors. Several virulence factors are correlated to the pathogenicity of this bacterium, including toxins and hemolysins. The objective of this research project is to characterize 50 isolates of Escherichia coli obtained from the environment regarding antimicrobial resistance, virulence, clonal relation and epidemiology. Sequencing of the complete genome of the isolates with the greatest potential for resistance and virulence and / or isolates that present a phenotypic potential of resistance and do not present the genes will allow the detection of new genes associated with this phenotype or genes that are poorly reported.
