To characterize the presence and genetic environment of the multiresistance gene cfr in bacterial isolates from a swine farm.A total of 97 bacterial isolates, recovered from 32 faecal swabs obtained on one farm, were tested for the presence of the cfr gene by PCR. Species identification of the one cfr-positive strain was conducted using the BD PhoenixTM 100 Automated Microbiology System. Susceptibility testing was carried out by broth microdilution. The genetic environment of the cfr gene was analysed by WGS.The Morganella morganii isolate BCMM24 was the only cfr-positive strain. The cfr gene, as well as 15 other resistance genes, is located on a novel 111238?bp transposon derived from Tn7, designated as Tn6451, which comprises various genetic materials including a novel class 1 integron with five gene cassettes. The cfr-containing region consists of a novel genetic structure IS26-cfr-?Tn554 tnpB-?Tn3 family tnpA-IS26, differing from previous reports. Two-step PCR results show that the structure can be looped out and that Tn6451 cannot be excised from the chromosome.To the best of our knowledge, we report the cfr gene in M. morganii for the first time. The cfr gene and 15 other resistance genes are located on a novel Tn7 transposon derivative, suggesting that the Tn7 transposon may act as a reservoir for various antimicrobial resistance genes and more Tn7 derivatives carrying multiple resistance genes are likely to be discovered in Gram-negative bacteria of both animal and human origin. © The Author(s) 2018.
