conclusions adeabc efflux system plays a vital role in multidrug resistance in clinical a. baumannii isolates. it was noted that the most important gene responsible for multidrug resistance within this system was the adeb gene especially in carbapenems resistance. methods this study was conducted on 84 multidrug resistant and 13 carbapenem-susceptible a. baumannii isolates obtained from burn and wound infections in baghdad hospitals, iraq. the adeabc genes were detected by polymerase chain reaction (pcr) assay. phe-arg-beta-naphthylamide (paβn)-based method was used for determination of efflux pump activity. results this study showed high prevalence of efflux pump genes in our local isolates. the adeb gene was present in all multidrug resistant isolates (100%) while aders gene was found in 95.2%, adec gene in 83.3% and adea gene in 77.4%. by comparing the prevalence of these gene in carbapenem-susceptible isolates, it was demonstrated that the gene adeb was absent in all susceptible isolates, also the regulatory gene aders was not found in most of these isolates, while the other genes (adea and adec) were detected in most carbapenem- susceptible isolates. susceptibility of isolates to amikacin, gentamicin, ciprofloxacin, levofloxacin, tetracycline and tigecycline was highly increased in the presence of efflux pump inhibitor, so that, paβn reduced the minimum inhibitory concentrations (mics) by 4 to 32 folds. also, mics of carbapenems were reduced in the presence of the inhibitor by two to eight folds, while the mics of colistin were not affected. objectives acinetobacter baumannii is an opportunistic nosocomial pathogen and a cause of severe infections in hospitalized patients, owing to its ability to acquire drug resistance by the efflux pump mechanism. the current study investigated the detection and prevalence of efflux pump genes (adeabc) in multidrug resistant a. baumannii isolates and the role of these genes in multidrug and carbapenems resistance.

RND-type efflux pumps in multidrug-resistant clinical isolates of Acinetobacter baumannii: major role for AdeABC overexpression and AdeRS mutations.

Increased expression of chromosomal genes for resistance-nodulation-cell division (RND)-type efflux systems plays a major role in the multidrug resistance (MDR) of Acinetobacter baumannii. However, the relative contributions of the three most prevalent pumps, AdeABC, AdeFGH, and AdeIJK, have not been evaluated in clinical settings. We have screened 14 MDR clinical isolates shown to be distinct ...

Detection of Efflux Pump Using Ethidium Bromide-Agar Cartwheel Method in Acinetobacter baumannii Clinical Isolates

Introduction: In the past decade, multidrug-resistant Acinetobacter baumannii has become one of the most critical challenges in treating infected patients. The AdeABC efflux pump is the most important among the various resistance mechanisms. This pump can force various antibiotics and ethidium bromide out of the bacterial cell to the surrounding environment. Methods: In this study, nine A. baum...

Abstract Background: Efflux systems are components of the bacterial membrane that play a role in homeostasis of the cell and extrusion of toxic compounds. Efflux pumps of the resistance nodulation cell division (RND) superfamily, confer multidrug resistance to their host when over-expressed. One of the RND efflux systems, is AdeABC which have been characterized for A. baumannii. Another pump be...

Multidrug-Resistant Acinetobacter baumannii

To understand the epidemiology of multidrug-resistant (MDR) Acinetobacter baumannii and define individual risk factors for multidrug resistance, we used epidemiologic methods, performed organism typing by pulsed-field gel electrophoresis (PFGE), and conducted a matched case-control retrospective study. We investigated 118 patients, on 27 wards in Israel, in whom MDR A. baumannii was isolated fr...

Correlation of Ciprofloxacin Resistance with the AdeABC Efflux System in Acinetobacter baumannii Clinical Isolates

BACKGROUND Acinetobacter baumannii is one of the most important pathogens capable of colonization in burn patients, leading to drug-resistant wound infections. This study evaluated the distribution of the AdeABC efflux system genes and their relationship to ciprofloxacin resistance in A. baumannii isolates collected from burn patients. METHODS A total of 68 A. baumannii clinical strains were ...
