Identification of a novel hybrid plasmid coproducing MCR-1 and MCR-3 variant from an Escherichia coli strain
A novel mcr-3.19 was identified along with mcr-1 contained in a hybrid plasmid. This finding suggested that evolution of mcr genes among various plasmids was being driven by mobile elements. Molecular surveillance of mcr gene co-occurrence warrants further investigation to evaluate the public health risk.
