Multidrug resistance: Not as recent as we thought

Researchers from Osaka University find that a relatively ancient drug efflux pump in Haemophilus influenzae confers resistance to the same drugs as its more evolved counterparts, and is only mitigated by a slightly leaky membrane channel

Researchers from Osaka University found that the ancient RND-type multidrug efflux pump AcrB from Haemophilus influenzae targets the same drugs as its...
