Antibiotic-resistant genes found in Kerala mangrove ecosystem

Antibiotic resistance is increasing in various microbial populations. A new study by Indian researchers has revealed that antibiotic-resistant genes are present in micro-organisms of mangrove regions in Kerala also.

The researchers, who conducted the studies in four locations along Kerala coast, have found acriflavine, fluoroquinolone, beta-lactamase and methicillin-resistant genes in microbial populations in mangrove ecological systems. The genes having resistance to antibiotics have been found both in pristine environmental sites and regions affected by human activities.
