Enzyme-mediated resistance to antibiotics :mechanisms, dissemination, and prospects for inhibition


There are several mechanisms by which bacteria acquire immunity to antibiotics, but the European and North American scientists here focus on those that are mediated by enzymes. In particular, they look at the enzymatic capabilities of micro-organisms to introduce chemical modifications that negate the biological activity of beta-lactams or aminoglycoside antibiotics. They consider enzymes that defend the bacterial ribosome and cell wall, novel approaches and future prospects for disarming the defense mechanisms, and the dissemination of antibiotic resistance and its biological cost.
