Molecular Detection of ESBL (CTX-M and SHV) genes in Pseudomonas
aeruginosa

Phenotyping is commonly used for detection of extended spectrum beta lactamase (ESBL) production in Gram-negative
isolates. ESBLs are mainly coded for b three important genes, namely blaTEM, blaSHV and blaCTX-M. Multiplex PCR as a rapid
method has been used to identify two common genes (blaCTX-M and blaSHV) responsible for extended spectrum beta lactamase
production in members of Pseudomonadaceae family isolated from different clinical samples from a speciality hospital at
Chennai.

Keywords: ESBL, Pseudomonas sp, SHV and CTX-M.
