    Description: Bacterial community composition in blood-sucking arthropods can shift dramatically across time and space. We used 16S rRNA gene amplification and pyrosequencing to investigate the relative impact of vertebrate host-related, arthropod-related and environmental factors on bacterial community composition in fleas and ticks collected from rodents in southern Indiana (USA). Bacterial community composition was largely affected by arthropod identity, but not by the rodent host or environmental conditions. Specifically, the arthropod group (fleas vs ticks) determined the community composition of bacteria, where bacterial communities of ticks were less diverse and more dependent on arthropod traits--especially tick species and life stage--than bacterial communities of fleas. Our data suggest that both arthropod life histories and the presence of arthropod-specific endosymbionts may mask the effects of the vertebrate host and its environment.

    Description: Although clinical antibiotic-resistant bacteria have attracted tremendous attention in the microbiology community, the resistant bacteria that persist in natural environments have been overlooked for a longtime. We previously proposed a new species Paramesorhizobium desertii, isolated from the soil of the Taklimakan Desert in China that is highly resistant to most β-lactam antibiotics. To identify potential β-lactamase(s) in this bacteria, we first confirmed the carbapenemase activity in the freeze–thawed supernatant of a P. desertii A-3-E culture using the modified Hodge assay. We then identified a novel chromosome-encoded carbapenemase (PAD-1) in strain A-3-E, using a shotgun proteomic analysis of the supernatant and genomic information. The bioinformatics analysis indicated that PAD-1 is a class A carbapenemase. Subsequent enzyme kinetic assays with purified PAD-1 confirmed its carbapenemase activity, which is similar to that of clinically significant class A carbapenemases, including BKC-1 and KPC-2. Because the location in which A-3-E was isolated is not affected by human activity, PAD-1 is unlikely to be associated with the selection pressures exerted by modern antibiotics. This study confirmed the diversity of antibiotic-resistant determinants in the environmental resistome.
