NOVEL INSIGHTS REGARDING THE SIGMOIDAL PATTERN OF RESISTANCE TO NEOMYCIN CONFERRED BY THE APHII GENE IN STREPTOMYCES LIVIDANS.

Nicolas Seghezzi, Marie-Joelle Virolle and Patrick Amar
A library of synthetic promoters of various strengths, specifically constructed for Streptomyces species, was cloned in the promoter-probe plasmid pIJ487, upstream of the promoter-less aphII gene that confers resistance to neomycin. The survival rates conferred by promoters were assessed in the presence of 100 μg/ml neomycin. The correlation between the transcriptional activity of the aphII gene (estimated by RT-PCR) and the resistance to neomycin (expressed as survival rate) indicated a sigmoid rather than a linear correlation. In this issue, we propose a tentative explanation for this sigmoidal pattern of resistance in relation with the level of aphII gene expression. Beyond this specific example, our model might constitute a sound explanation for the generally observed but never explained sigmoidal shape of classical inhibition curves obtained in the presence of linearly increasing antibiotic concentrations.
