Mechanisms of resistance to fluoroquinolones in Coxiella burnetii.

Abstract

Mechanisms of resistance to quinolones were investigated in two in vitro DNA gyrase mutant Coxiella burnetii strains. Accumulation of pefloxacin was found to be lower in resistant strains than in susceptible strains. Pre-incubation with carbonyl cyanide m-chlorophenylhydrazone had no apparent effect on intracellular quinolone fluorescence, indicating that… (More)
