Identification of novel ABC transport systems important for bacitracin resistance. A) Homologous pairs of genes encoding putative ABC transport integral membrane (black arrow) and ATP-binding (grey arrow) proteins located close to each other on the chromosome. B) Transcription of both transport systems is strongly up-regulated following treatment with bacitracin (Bac), moenomycin A (Moe) and vancomycin (Van). Heatmap summarising the significant changes in expression of the genes relative to the control (Ctrl). The magnitude of the change in expression is colour coded according to the legend shown. C) Deletion of the transport systems individually or together increases susceptibility to bacitracin.
