Molecular characterization of the staphylococcal multidrug resistance export protein QacC.

Abstract:

The QacC polypeptide is a member of a family of small membrane proteins which confer resistance to toxic compounds. The staphylococcal qacC gene confers resistance to toxic organic cations via proton-dependent export. The membrane topology of the QacC polypeptide was investigated by constructing and analyzing a series of qacC-phoA and qacC-lacZ fusions. From these analyses, most of the predicted features of the QacC protein were verified, although data regarding the possible orientation of th...
