Part Description

LP266717-0   Fluoroquinolone
Fluorquinolones are among most beneficial drugs used to treat multi-drug resistant Mycobacterium tuberculosis (MDR-TB) infections. The fluorquinolones affect the activity of DNA gyrase by reducing the cell's ability for DNA replication and transcription. DNA gyrase in Mycobacterium tuberculosis (TB) is made of two subunits that are encoded by gyrA and gyrB. Mutations in the gyrA quinolone resistance-determining region (QRDR) are responsible for causing most of the drug resistance of TB to the fluoroquinolones. The gyrB mutations have a much smaller impact on TB resistance to the fluoroquinolones.[PMID:26763957] Source: Regenstrief LOINC
