Gene_nameExperimentally Verified Resistance Gene Information Predicted Resistance Gene Information
  • BacMet ID: BAC0328
  • Code for: Regulator
  • Family: Contains 1 HTH tetR-type DNA-binding domain
  • Sequence: FASTA
  • Cross-database IDs: Link
  • Organism: Staphylococcus aureus
  • Location: Plasmid pSK1 (S. aureus)
  • Compound: Chlorhexidine [class: Biguanides], Cetylpyridinium Chloride (CPC) [class: Quaternary Ammonium Compounds (QACs)], Dequalinium [class: Quaternary Ammonium Compounds (QACs)], Benzylkonium Chloride (BAC) [class: Quaternary Ammonium Compounds (QACs)], Pentamidine [class: Diamidine], Propamidine [class: Diamidine], Diaminodiphenylamine [class: Diamidine]
  • Description: HTH-type transcriptional regulator QacR, Transcriptional repressor of qacA. Binds to IR1, an unusually long 28 bp operator, which is located downstream from the qacA promoter and overlaps its transcription start site. QacR is induced from its IR1 site by binding to one of many structurally dissimilar cationic lipophilic compounds, which are also substrates of QacA.
  • Length (amino acid): 188
  • Reference: Grkovic et al. 1998; Pubmed- 9660841
