R factors present in Pseudomonas aeruginosa strains of clinical origin can be transferred to other strains of P. aeruginosa and may act to promote host chromosome transfer. In general, their properties are similar to those R factors in Enterobacteria. The different R factors studied vary with respect to transferability, transfer of specific resistance properties, repressibility, and ability to promote chromosome transfer.
