Abstract

All of the transmembrane glutamates of Tet(L) are essential for tetracycline (TET) resistance, and E397 has been shown to be essential for all catalytic modes, i.e., TET-Me(2+) and Na(+) efflux and K(+) uptake. Loop residues D74 and G70 are essential for TET flux but not for Na(+) or K(+) flux. A cysteineless Tet(L) protein exhibits all activities.
