Gene_nameExperimentally Verified Resistance Gene Information Predicted Resistance Gene Information
  • BacMet ID: BAC0378
  • Code for: Efflux
  • Family: Small multidrug resistance (SMR) family (SugE subfamily)
  • Sequence: FASTA
  • Cross-database IDs: Link
  • Organism: only gram -ve, Escherichia coli
  • Location: Plasmid IncN p541 (Escherichia coli), Plasmid pIW759 (Salmonella typhimurium)
  • Compound: Cetrimide (CTM) [class: Quaternary Ammonium Compounds (QACs)], Cetylpyridinium Chloride (CPC) [class: Quaternary Ammonium Compounds (QACs)], Tetraphenylphosphonium (TPP) [class: Quaternary Ammonium Compounds (QACs)], Benzylkonium Chloride (BAC) [class: Quaternary Ammonium Compounds (QACs)], Ethidium Bromide [class: Phenanthridine], and Sodium Dodecyl Sulfate (SDS) [class: Organo-sulfate]
  • Description: Quaternary ammonium compound-resistance protein sugE, Quaternary ammonium compound efflux pump. Confers resistance to cetylpyridinium, cetyldimethylethyl ammonium and cetrimide cations; Unlike the other members of the SMR family, SugE exhibits a narrow specificity for a very specific class of compounds.
  • Length (amino acid): 105
