Abstract

DETECTION OF BACTERIOCIN GENE FROM KLEBSIELLA PNEUMONIAE

Amal A. Kareem and Tuqa S. Al-Salmani*

ABSTRACT

Bacteriocins are antimicrobial peptides produced ribosomally by Klebsiella species. They kill other members of the same or closely related species. The aim of this study was to detect bacteriocins gene in Klebsiella pneumoniae isolates. Thirty one isolates were identified as K. pneumoniae by biochemical and microbiological methods and confirmed by API 20E system and VITEK-2 system. The resistance rate of amikacin, ampicillin, augmentin, azetreonam and tetracycline was recorded (32.26%, 64.52%, 51.61%, 48.39% and 41.94% respectively). Klebicin gene cluster was detected in 15(48.39%) of K. pneumoniae isolates.

Keywords: Bacteriocin, Klebicin, Klebsiella pneumoniae.
