Role of polyamines in formation of multiple antibiotic resistance of Escherichia coli under stress conditions


Under stress conditions, polyamines decreased the permeability of the outer membrane of Escherichia coli. This effect is caused by at least three mechanisms providing for an increase in the resistance to antibiotics transported through porin channels (fluoroquinolones, β-lactams): a positive modulation of the gene micF transcription (its product antisense… (More)
