  13. Computer Simulations Reveal Roots of Drug ResistanceRead the original story w/Photo

    Dec 4, 2017 | Newswise

    LOS ALAMOS, N.M., Dec. 4, 2017 - New supercomputer simulations have revealed the role of transport proteins called efflux pumps in creating drug-resistance in bacteria, research that could lead to improving the drugs' effectiveness against life-threatening diseases and restoring the efficacy of defunct antibiotics. "By understanding how the pump moves and dynamically behaves, we can potentially find a way to deactivate the pump - and antibiotics that haven't worked in a long time may be useful again," said Los Alamos biophysicist Gnana Gnanakaran, who collaborated with colleagues at the Laboratory and with bacterial efflux pump experts Helen Zgurskaya at the University of Oklahoma and Klaas Pos at Goethe University in Frankfurt, Germany.
