AMR DIGEST – End of the year 2023

Prepared by Anna Abramova

The final AMR Digest of 2023 features microbial wars and weaponry evolution, “plastisphere” as a new home for bacterial communities, inter-phylum ARGs exchange, peculiarities of honeybee and stray cats microbiota, and how the distance that your steak travels before ending-up on your plate is related to MDR contamination. And much more!

Gene Transfer/Plasmids

Inter-phylum circulation of a beta-lactamase – encoding gene: a rare but observable event Rémi Gschwind, Marie Petitjean, Claudine Fournier, Julie Lao, Olivier Clermont, Patrice Nordmann, Alexander Mellmann, Erick Denamur, Laurent Poirel, Etienne Ruppé – bioRxiv preprint
*While transfer of beta-lactamase encoding genes typically occurs between closely-related bacteria, the research documents a unique case of inter-phylum transfer between the Peudomonadota and Bacteroidota phyla. The investigation focuses on an extended-spectrum beta-lactamase (ESBL)-encoding gene, blaMUN-1, from an Escherichia coli strain. This study marks the first reported instance of inter-phylum transfer of an ESBL-encoding gene, indicating that while inter-phylum barriers are generally robust, they are not insurmountable.

AMR DIGEST – October 2023

Prepared by Marcus Wenne (

The October AMR Digest brings a variety of discussions to the table, covering the realm of AMR through different scopes. It sheds light on the role of genomic surveillance, the interactions between humans and their environment in the context of AMR, and presents potential alternative therapeutic avenues against drug-resistant pathogens. The digest also touches on the importance of accurate antimicrobial use, intriguing findings from wastewater treatment plant studies, and the potential of leveraging technology to combat AMR. Through a blend of clinical, environmental, and technological perspectives, the digest offers a broad view on the current strides in the AMR landscape.

Our monthly EMBARK Webinar for November is titled Ecology and evolution of ARGs: From surveillance to intervention strategies with Prof. Craig MacLean & Prof. Sofia K. Forslund, moderated by Ulrike Löber .

The resistome and microbiome of wastewater treatment plant workers–The AWARE Study

– Fanny Berglund et al. – Environmental international

*The study explored antibiotic ARGs in wastewater treatment plant workers, hypothesizing they’d have more diverse resistant bacteria. Analyzing fecal microbiomes and resistomes of 87 wastewater treatment plant workers and 87 controls via shotgun metagenomics, no significant difference in ARG abundance or microbiome composition was found between groups. Interestingly, women had higher disinfectant resistance genes, hinting at cosmetics or cleaning products use as possible contributors. The study concludes that wastewater treatment plant employment doesn’t increase ARG abundance/diversity, and other factors like country of residence, recent antibiotic intake, and gender have more significant impacts.

These antibodies are identified as effective against drug-resistant strains, showing promise as an alternative treatment option. Through this work, the authors propose exploiting the immune responses from chronically infected patients as a potential resource for developing new therapeutics against Pseudomonas aeruginosa infections.

Exploiting the aggregation propensity of beta-lactamases to design inhibitors that induce enzyme misfolding. – Khodaparast L et al. – Nat Commun.

Beta-lactamases are the main resistance mechanism against beta-lactam antibiotics. They represent a threat for infectious diseases treatment as their resistance spectrum includes all the beta-lactam antibiotics and even beta-lactam associated with beta-lactamases inhibitors. This study reports the test of a new strategy targeting the beta-lactamase itself rather than its active site on beta-lactam antibiotics with inhibitors. It lays on targeting aggregation-prone regions of the enzyme which cause inactivation of the enzyme. TEM and SHV beta-lactamases were investigated regarding their tendency to aggregate. The aggregation of TEM, SHV, and NDM was not bactericidal but it allowed to restore sensitivity to beta-lactam antibiotics.

Wastewater treatment plants (WWTPs) are hotspots for ARGs.

Extracellular DNA has to be taken into account as transformation of naturally competent bacteria can occur with extracellular DNA containing ARGs. The study shows how wastewater is a source of ARGs associated with free-floating exDNA.
