Drug-Inactivating Enzymes & Resistance

Drug inactivation or modification is one of the mechanisms through which resistance occurs. For instance, some penicillin-resistant bacteria produce beta-lactamases to enzymatically deactivate Penicillin G. Here is the latest research on drug inactivating enzymes and resistance.

Efflux-mediated drug resistance is one mechanism where bacteria can express proteins that pump out antibiotics, thereby rendering therapy ineffective. Discover the latest research on efflux-mediated drug resistance here.

Horizontal Gene Transfer

Horizontal gene transfer is a mechanism in which genetic material is transmitted from one organism to another organism. This process is used by bacteria to acquire antibiotic resistance genes and is important for bacterial evolution. Discover the latest research on horizontal gene transfer here.

Infectious Disease - Sequencing

Infectious Disease Sequencing is a emerging field due to low-cost massively parallel sequencing and allows researchers to monitor outbreaks of infectious pathogens. Discover the latest research on Infectious Disease Sequencing here.

MRSA Infections

MRSA Infections or Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus infections are difficult to treat due to resistance to the beta-lactam family of antibiotics. MRSA infections are commonly acquired in hospitals. Discover the latest research on MRSA Infections here.
