Abstract

Two new genes (mexXY) similar to mexAB, mexCD, and mexEF and mediating multidrug resistance were cloned from the chromosome of Pseudomonas aeruginosa. Elevated ethidium extrusion was observed with Escherichia coli cells harboring the plasmid carrying mexXY. This MexXY system confers higher resistance to fluoroquinolones than the MexAB and MexCD systems, and E. coli TolC or P. aeruginosa OprM is necessary for the function of the MexXY system.
