Researchers discover novel colistin resistance gene mcr-3 in Escherichia coli  

A new mobile colistin resistance gene, mcr-3, has been discovered in E. coli of pig origin. The novel mcr-3 gene was discovered when a colistin-resistant Escherichia coli isolate tested negative for both mcr-1 and mcr-2. This novel mobile colistin resistance gene may already be widely disseminated. Screening for the mcr-3 gene should be urgently included in the surveillance of colistin-resistant Gram-negative pathogens from animals, humans, and the environment.

Hunting microbes or smelling poison: A matter of evolution  

Mammals possess several lines of defense against microbes.

The biologists now describe how Fprs have acquired this olfactory role during rodent evolution, moving from the immune system to a neuro
