Figure 1. Plasmid profiles of representative MDR A. baumannii isolates bearing single and multiple numbers of plasmids. (a) Lanes 1, 3-7, 17 (strain IDs P1, P4, P5, P6, P9, P11, P35) depict strains containing two plasmids of sizes greater than ≥ 10Kb and lane 16 containing two plasmids, one is of 5Kb and another of ≥ 10Kb size; (b) Lanes 13, 14 & 21 depict strains (P20, P3 & P23) containing two plasmids, one ≥ 10Kb and another of 8Kb size; (c) Lane 2 depicts strain (P2) containing multiple plasmids (n=9); (d) Lane 8 depicts strain (P12) harbouring single plasmid with molecular weight greater than 10Kb; Lane 11 depict strain (P16) harbouring single plasmid with molecular weight of 5Kb; (e) Lanes 9, 10 and 18 represents strains (P13, P14, P48) harbouring four plasmids of size varying from 2Kb to 10Kb; (f) Lane 12, 19 and 20 (strain IDs P17, P28, P22) contains three plasmids of size varying from 2Kb to >10Kb; (g) Lane 15 shows strain (P10) containing five plasmids of size varying from 5Kb to >10Kb.
