Antimicrobial resistance gene found in wolves

  10 November 2020

A team from the University of Teramo and Majella National Park have discovered proof of antimicrobial resistant (AMR) genes in wolf habitats. In the Appenine area, researchers found the presence of tetracycline resistance gene TetA(P) in one of the two monitored packs. Tetracycline is an antibiotic drug that fights diseases caused by bacteria. The results confirm that the ecological context in which wildlife currently lives can provide relevant information about the environmental pathways by which antimicrobial resistance may be acquired and dispersed.
