resistance plasmid

resistance plasmid

n.
Any of the conjugative or nonconjugative plasmids carrying genes responsible for antibiotic or antibacterial drug resistance among bacteria. Also called resistance factor, R factor, R plasmid.

resistance plasmid

see R PLASMID (R FACTOR). resistance transfer factor (RTF) a gene set that carries genetic information for the transfer of R PLASMIDS (R FACTORS).
