Synonym(s)GesABC STM0352 STM0351 STM0350
DefinitionMdsABC, or GesABC, is a RND-type efflux complex found in Salmonella. In addition to its metal-efflux system, GesABC is also capable of exporting beta-lactams, chloramphenicol, and thiamphenicol. GesB is the inner membrane transporter and is similar to MexF; GesA is the membrane-fusion protein, and GesC is the outer membrane factor.
