Table 2 ARG families found exclusively in a single community

From: A reservoir of ‘historical’ antibiotic resistance genes in remote pristine Antarctic soils

Sample site ARG family description
MS4-1 Multidrug efflux pump
MGM-3 Dihydrofolate reductase, which cannot be inhibited by trimethoprim
MS1-1 Tet35 is a tetracycline efflux pump found in the Gram-negative Vibrio and Stenotrophomonas. Unrelated to other tet resistance genes
TG5-1 Aminoglycoside 6-N-acetyltransferase, which modifies aminoglycosides by acetylation
CN-4 Adenine transferase/methyltransferase, conferring resistance to erythromycin/kasugamycin
  Mutation frequency decline (Mfd) protein
