EptA protein

  • This protein shields superbugs from antibiotics
  • The EptA protein causes multi-drug resistance by masking bacteria from both the human immune system and important antibiotics
  • Significance: This mapping is a breakthrough because it will allow development of a drug to prevent superbugs hiding from medication. Thus, it open door to combating the threat of antibiotic resistance and is considered as a huge step forward in the global fight against superbugs.
