Tn2555.3
Characteristics
Tn2555.3 is a variant of Tn2555 with the size of 14.2-kb. It contains genes for sucrose metabolism flanked by invert repeated IS26 elements same as Tn2555.1, but the genes are oriented in opposite direction.

Accession number
Tn4453a
  • Antibiotic Resistance
  • Chloramphenicol
Characteristics
Tn4453a is a chloramphenicol resistance transposon similar to Tn4451. The chloramphenicol resistance is mediated by catD gene. It was detected in Clostridium difficile. The Tn4453a was found to be co-existed with another transposon, Tn4453b in C. difficile.
