Repressed multidrug resistance genes in Streptomyces lividans

Abstract

Multidrug resistance (MDR) systems are ubiquitously present in prokaryotes and eukaryotes and defend both types of organisms against toxic compounds in the environment. Four families of MDR systems have been described, each family removing a broad spectrum of compounds by a specific membrane-bound active efflux pump. In the present study, at least four MDR… (More)
