Genes encoding the NDM variants NDM-1, -2, -4, -5, -6 and -7 were amplified using DNA templates prepared from NDM-producing clinical isolates or E. coli transconjugants.(22–24) Both full coding sequences and the NDM gene with the native ISAb125 promoter (22) were amplified and cloned in the pCR-Blunt II TOPO vector (Invitrogen, Paisley, UK) and transformed in E. coli TOP10. The susceptibility of the transformants containing pCR2.1 NDM and pCR2.1 NDM P+ plasmids to ampicillin, cefalotin, cefoxitin, ceftazidime, ertapenem, imipenem, meropenem and doripenem was determined using the Etest method (bioMérieux, Basingstoke, UK) on Mueller–Hinton agar.

NDM-3 (D95N) and NDM-8 (M154L+D130G) variants were transformed in E. coli DH5α instead of E. coli TOP10
