Inhibition of deoxyribonucleic acid gyrase: effects on nucleic acid...

Mutants of Escherichia coli resistant to the antibiotic clorobiocin are also coumermycin resistant, and the mutation to resistance in at least one mutant was mapped near gyrB. We conclude, therefore, that clorobiocin inhibits deoxyribonucleic acid gyrase, and the drug was used to probe the role of this enzyme in vivo.

Global Incidence of Carbapenemase-Producing Escherichia coli ST131

Gisele Peirano, Patricia A. Bradford, Krystyna M. Kazmierczak, Robert E. Badal, Meredith Hackel, Daryl J. Hoban, and Johann D.D. Pitout We characterized Escherichia coli ST131 isolates among 116 carbapenemase-producing strains. Of isolates from 16 countries collected during 2008-2013, 35% belonged to ST131 and were associated with bla KPC, H 30 lineage, and virotype C. This study documents worldwide incidents of resistance to "last resort" antimicrobial drugs among a common pathogen in a successful sequence type.

An integrative, multi-scale, genome-wide model reveals the phenotypic landscape of Escherichia coli.

Given the vast behavioral repertoire and biological complexity of even the simplest organisms, accurately predicting phenotypes in novel environments and unveiling their biological organization is a challenging endeavor. Here, we present an integrative modeling methodology that unifies under a common framework the various biological processes and their interactions across multiple layers.
