Abstract

Staphylococcus hyicus cultures, isolated from piglets with skin lesions, were investigated for their plasmid profile and their resistance to antimicrobial agents. Plasmid of different sizes could be detected in six Staphylococcus hyicus isolates. All that samples showed tetracycline resistance and presented small plasmid of 4.0 Kb. Curing and transformation experiments showed that the 4.0 Kb plasmid harboured the genetic determinant of tetracycline resistance in this strains.
