Abstract

SUMMARY: Δψ-reduced mutants of were shown to be resistant to the positively charged antitumoral drugs 2--methylellipticinium (NME) and 2--methyl-9-hydroxyellipticinium (NMHE). Conversely, mutants selected for their resistance to NMHE were mapped within the locus and exhibited the pleiotropic AmiA phenotype. This shows that Δψ is a critical parameter in determining resistance to these drugs in and suggests that they are accumulated within this bacterium in response to Δψ. As a consequence NME and NMHE appear to be valuable tools for selecting Δψ-reduced mutants in
