Distribution of MICs of erythromycin for Escherichia coli isolates according to the presence of genes resistant to macrolides. MIC distribution is shown for all strains (black bars). Solid white bars indicate strains containing a macrolide resistance gene: erm(B), mph(A), or mph(B). Some isolates may contain 2 genes resistant to macrolides.
