The recent discovery of a horizontally transferable plasmid-mediated mcr-1 gene encoding a phosphoethanolamine transferase is a cause for concern, but few mcr-1 -positive clinical strains of Klebsiella pneumoniae have been reported so far in Europe (2).
2000) Requirement of PIG-F and PIG-O for transferring phosphoethanolamine to the third mannose in glycosylphosphatidylinositol.
The mcr-1 gene was located in a 4,752-bp contig, which when used to query the cur rent databases matched an identical region containing a transposase gene, a phosphoethanolamine transferase gene (the mcr-1 encoding gene), a hypothetical protein/ phosphoesterase gene, and another transposase.
C] Glycosphingolipids contain phosphorus and amine as 2-aminoethylphosphonic acid or phosphoethanolamine and are zwitterionic.
All amino acids detected in the urine control were also quantified in urine samples from patients to establish adequate reference intervals, regardless of the fact that some of them either were not useful for diagnosis or required special sampling for clinical management (1methylhistidine, carnosine, tryptophan, phosphoethanolamine, ethanolamine).
A recent report revealed that addition of phosphoethanolamine may also be plasmid mediated through the mcr1 gene, which confers the first known plasmid-mediated resistance to colistin in isolates from humans and animals (7).
The CVs for most free amino acids of the four sample types (n = 172) were between 12% and 42%, except for the following amino acids: phosphoethanolamine (PTEN), aspartic acid (Asp), hydroxyproline (Hyp), citrulline (Cit), [beta]-alanine, ethanolamine, and Trp.
