INTRODUCTION Quinolones are one of the types of antibiotics with higher resistance rates in the last years. At molecular level, quinolones block type II topoisomerases producing double strand breaks (DSBs). These DSBs could play a double role, as inductors of the quinolone bactericidal effects but also as mediators of the resistance and tolerance(More)
In Escherichia coli, an increase in the ATP bound form of the DnaA initiator protein results in hyperinitiation and inviability. Here, we show that such replication stress is tolerated during anaerobic growth. In hyperinitiating cells, a shift from anaerobic to aerobic growth resulted in appearance of fragmented chromosomes and a decrease in terminus(More)
