Edeine acetyltransferase [AMR Gene Family]

Accession ARO:3004064
DefinitionEdeine acetyltransferase enzymes catalyze the transfer of an acetyl group to active edeine, converting it to an inactive form in vivo. This mechanism is used for high-level self-resistance in edeine-producing Brevibacillus spp.
Drug Classpeptide antibiotic, polyamine antibiotic
Resistance Mechanismantibiotic inactivation
