Abstract

In response to antibiotics, bacteria activate regulatory systems that control the expression of genes that participate in detoxifying these compounds, like multidrug efflux systems. We previously demonstrated that the BaeSR two-component system from serovar Typhimurium (. Typhimurium) participates in the detection of ciprofloxacin, a bactericidal antibiotic, and in the positive regulation of , an efflux pump implicated in antibiotic resistance. In the present work, we provide further evidence for a role of the . Typhimurium BaeSR two-component system in response to ciprofloxacin treatment and show that it regulates expression. We demonstrate that, in the absence of BaeSR, the transcript levels of and the activity of its gene product are lower. Using electrophoretic mobility shift assays and transcriptional fusions, we demonstrate that BaeR regulates by a direct interaction with the promoter region.
