Klebsiella pneumoniae KpnEF

Accession ARO:3004585
DefinitionKpnEF resembles EbrAB from E. coli. Mutation in KpnEF resulted in increased susceptibility to cefepime, ceftriaxon, colistin, erythromycin, rifampin, tetracycline, and streptomycin as well as enhanced sensitivity toward sodium dodecyl sulfate, deoxycholate, dyes, benzalkonium chloride, chlorhexidine, and triclosan.
