Topics include the development of new antibiotics, the prevalence of plasmids and other mobile genetic elements in clinically important drug-resistant bacteria, genetic and chemical effectors in the regulation of efflux pumps in Enterobacteriaceae, biofilms and their relation to multi-resistance and persistence, options for infections caused by extended-spectrum beta-lactamase producers, monitoring antimicrobial resistance, predicting the evolution and emergence of new antibiotic resistance genes, mathematical modeling in the ecology and economics of cycling antibiotics, and the social context of drug discovery and safety testing.
The structure of these genetic environments implied that the genes for these 16S rRNA methylases are mediated by mobile genetic elements carried by transferable large plasmids (7,8,10).
PROREST technology copies the promoters and places them into mobile genetic elements, called retrotransposons.
Mobile genetic elements such as SXT have a crucial role in spreading antimicrobial drug resistance genes among microbial populations, and our understanding of these genetic elements would help to control the emergence of antimicrobial drug resistance.
According to a NTC spokesperson, synthetic retrotransposon vectors contain gene sequences derived from mobile genetic elements (VL30s) that are transmitted by standard retrovirus particles.
