Abstract

The mcb operon (which is responsible for microcin B17 production) and the emr operon (which encodes a multidrug resistance pump) share a common negative regulator, EmrR. Nevertheless, compounds that induce the emr operon repress the mcb operon. The pump dedicated to microcin B17 extrusion can also protect the calls against sparfloxacin and other toxic compounds.
