The marRAB operon is one of two operons in the mar locus of Escherichia coli that are divergently transcribed from a central regulatory region, marO. The marRAB operon, transcribed from marOII, controls intrinsic resistance or susceptibility to multiple antibiotics and is inducible by structurally unrelated compounds such as tetracycline and chloramphenicol (S. P. Cohen, H. Hachler, and S. B. Levy, J. Bacteriol. 175:1484-1492, 1993). To clarify the role of the operon in response to… CONTINUE READING
