Pseudomonas aeruginosa (P. aeruginosa) is a gram-negative bacterium that continues to be a major cause of opportunistic nosocomial infections. In P. aeruginosa, several f luoroquinolones resis- tance mechanisms have been proposed such as mutations in the target enzymes GyrA and ParC and upregu- lation of efflux pump MexAB-OprM. Fluoroquinolones inhibit the target enzymes DNA gyrase and topoisomerase IV, each comprised of two subunits: GyrA and GyrB, and ParC and ParE, respectively. In addi- tion, f luoroquinolones were blocked by overexpression of MexAB-OprM induced through mutations in the regulatory genes mexR and nalC. Materials and methods. In this study, 44 P. aeruginosa strains were isolated from different clinical samples of burn and infection from patients in some hospitals http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Molecular Genetics, Microbiology and Virology Springer Journals
