IncA/C plasmids carrying an unusual cassette configuration in a class 1 integron and five further shared resistance genes, aacC4, aphA1, hph, sul2, and tetA(D) were found in Salmonella enterica serovars Senftenberg and Ohio. A deletion formed using a short region of homology in the 5' conserved segment and the orfF cassette created an array with only part of orfF followed by the aadA2 cassette. The IncA/C plasmids were not recoverable by conjugation, but additional conjugative resistance plasmids were present in some strains.
