Sub-Inhibitory Concentrations of Mupirocin Stimulate Staphylococcus aureus Biofilm Formation by Up-regulating cidA

Antimicrobial Agents and Chemotherapy

Ye JinFangyou Yu

Abstract

Previous studies have shown that the administration of antibiotics at sub-inhibitory concentrations stimulates biofilm formation by the majority of MRSA strains. Here, we investigated the effect of sub-inhibitory mupirocin concentrations on biofilm formation by the community-associated ...read more

Biofilm & Infectious Disease

Biofilm formation is a key virulence factor for a wide range of microorganisms that cause chronic infections.Here is the latest research on biofilm and infectious diseases.

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.

CRISPR Screens in Drug Resistance

CRISPR-Cas system enables the editing of genes to create or correct mutations. This feed focuses on the application of CRISPR-Cas system in high-throughput genome-wide screens to identify genes that may confer drug resistance.

Vitamin K Carboxylase & Antibiotics

Vitamin K-dependent carboxylases generate gamma-carboxyglutamic acids with malonate moieties by modifying glutamate residues in vitamin K-dependent proteins. This feed focuses on cellular mechanisms regulated by vitamin K-dependent carboxylases.

Biofilms

Biofilms are adherent bacterial communities embedded in a polymer matrix and can cause persistent human infections that are highly resistant to antibiotics. Discover the latest research on Biofilms here.
