Research Interests

The majority of bacterial drug-transporter genes are known to be subjected to regulation by transcriptional regulatory proteins. These local transcriptional regulators act by directly binding to a similar wide range of toxic compounds to that exported by the membrane protein whose expression they control. Our major research interest is to: Understand how MDR gene expression is regulated, particularly genes that bring about multiple antibiotic resistances. Specifically, we are studying the mechanism of transcriptional activation by different regulators involved in resistance to diverse antibiotics, disinfectants, and organic solvents in A.baumannii. By combining various cutting edge molecular tools we are learning how these proteins are regulated.
