The Mechanism of CIDR-Mediated Regulation in Staphylococcus Aureus Grant uri icon



  • The regulation of the Staphylococcus aureus cid operon and the antibiotic tolerance that it mediates may provide insight into the mechanism of antibiotic-induced killing of bacteria. This purpose of this study is to examine the regulatory elements and effector molecules that impact the expression of the cid operon and to better understand the underlying elements involved in the physiological response to antibiotics.
