Abnormal bacterial cell growth associated with antimicrobial resistance

  03 March 2020

Abnormal bacterial cell growth associated with antimicrobial resistance, Scientists at the University of Surrey have identified mutations in genes in the Escherichia coli (E. coli) model that can help explain the form of antibiotic resistance (AMR) known as persistence.

By publishing their results in the well-known PNAS journal, scientists have identified mutations in the ydcI gene that cause an increase in the number of bacterial cells that are known to be persistent.
