NorM, a Putative Multidrug Efflux Protein, of Vibrio parahaemolyticus and Its Homolog in Escherichia coli
ABSTRACT We found that cells of Vibrio parahaemolyticus possess an energy-dependent efflux system for norfloxacin. We cloned a gene for a putative norfloxacin efflux protein from the chromosomal DNAExpand

Expression in Escherichia coli of a New Multidrug Efflux Pump, MexXY, from Pseudomonas aeruginosa
ABSTRACT Two new genes (mexXY) similar to mexAB,mexCD, and mexEF and mediating multidrug resistance were cloned from the chromosome of Pseudomonas aeruginosa. Elevated ethidium extrusion was observedExpand

Functional Cloning and Characterization of a Plant Efflux Carrier for Multidrug and Heavy Metal Detoxification*
We have identified a detoxifying efflux carrier from Arabidopsis using a functional cloning strategy. A bacterial mutant, KAM3, is deficient in multidrug resistance and does not survive on mediumExpand

A putative multisubunit Na+/H+ antiporter from Staphylococcus aureus.
We cloned several genes encoding an Na+/H+ antiporter of Staphylococcus aureus from chromosomal DNA by using an Escherichia coli mutant, lacking all of the major Na+/H+ antiporters, as the host. E.Expand

Cloning and sequencing of the gene for Na+/H+ antiporter of Vibrio parahaemolyticus.
A gene encoding an Na+/H+ antiporter was cloned from vibrio parahaemolyticus into the plasmid pBR322 and expressed in Escherichia coli cells. The gene enabled mutant E. coli cells to grow in theExpand

Multidrug efflux transporters in the MATE family.
The MATE (Multidrug And Toxic Compound Extrusion) family is the most recently categorized one among five multidrug efflux transporter families. As far as we know, about twenty MATE transporters haveExpand

A new Na+/H+ antiporter, NhaD, of Vibrio parahaemolyticus.
A gene encoding an Na+/H+ antiporter was cloned from chromosomal DNA of Vibrio parahaemolyticus, a slightly halophilic bacterium, and expressed in Escherichia coli cells. The gene enabled mutant E.Expand

AbeM, an H+-Coupled Acinetobacter baumannii Multidrug Efflux Pump Belonging to the MATE Family of Transporters
ABSTRACT We cloned a gene, abeM, for a multidrug efflux pump from Acinetobacter baumannii using Escherichia coli as the host. Sequence analysis revealed that AbeM is a member of the MATE family ofExpand

Remarkable Synergies between Baicalein and Tetracycline, and Baicalein and β‐Lactams against Methicillin‐Resistant Staphylococcus aureus
During the screening of compounds that potentiate the effect of antimicrobial agents against methicillin‐resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA), we found that an extract of thyme (Thymus vulgaris L)Expand
