A Novel Mechanism of Inactivating Antibacterial Nitro Compounds in the Human Pathogen Staphylococcus aureus by Overexpression of a NADH-Dependent Flavin Nitroreductase.


Recently, the nitro-substituted bisquaternary bisnaphthalimides were reported to have substantial anti-infective activity against Gram-positive bacteria, including methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA). Here, we selected resistant S. aureus clones by cultivation in increasing concentrations of the most active compound, MT02. Interestingly, MT02… (More)
