  • Description: VexH contributes to antimicrobial resistance and exhibits broad substrate specificity. VexH is important for intestinal colonization and virulence factor production. V. cholerae RND efflux pumps (e.g. vexAB, vexCD etc.) have redundant functions, not only in antimicrobial resistance, but also in virulence factor production. RND efflux system contribute to V. cholerae pathogenesis in two ways. First, the RND efflux systems function to provide the bacterium with protection against antimicrobial compounds that are present in the host. Second, the RND efflux systems are required for efficient production of virulence factors. VexH can confer resistance to antibitics such as ampicillin and novobiocin.
