for some reason, uropathogenic coliforms are resistant to quite high 
concentrations of nickel. the mechanism involves both plasmid and chromosomal 
genes and nickel resistance results due to an efflux system. if any one has 
any theories as to why these bacteria are nickel resistant or know of any 
good refferances then please get in touch.
