Abstract

The aim of this study was to evaluate the role of proton motive force (PMF)-dependent efflux in resistance of to tetracycline (Tet). Tet MIC was determined by agar dilution in the presence and absence of carbonyl cyanide -chlorophenylhydrazone (CCCP), an inhibitor of PMF. Antibiotic accumulation was conducted in the presence or absence of CCCP and the fluorescence of the accumulated antibiotic was measured by spectrofluorometry. In the presence of CCCP, antibiotic accumulation was increased by 2–17-fold in 17/20 Tet isolates and by 3–10-fold in four of five high-level-resistant mutants. Correlation was observed between this increase and diminution of MIC with CCCP. PMF-dependent efflux mechanisms therefore appear to play an important role in the resistance of clinical isolates of to Tet.
