Role of the AheABC efflux pump in Aeromonas hydrophila intrinsic multidrug resistance.

Gene inactivation and complementation experiments showed that the tripartite AheABC efflux pump of Aeromonas hydrophila extruded at least 13 substrates, including nine antibiotics. The use of phenylalanine-arginine-beta-naphthylamide (PAbetaN) revealed an additional system(s) contributing to intrinsic resistance. This is the first analysis of the role of… CONTINUE READING
