Abstract

Pseudomonas aeruginosa strains that overexpress mexCD-oprJ become hypersusceptible to imipenem. Disruption of AmpC induction has been suggested to cause this phenotype. However, data from this study demonstrate that hypersusceptibility to imipenem can develop without changes in ampC expression or AmpC activity. Furthermore, hypersusceptibility is not caused by changes in expression of the outer membrane porin, OprD.
