Study Could Lead to Inhibitors for Multidrug Molecular Pump

A more detailed understanding of the workings of the membrane-bound pump that many bacteria use to eject antibiotics will, researchers hope, lead to ways of making bacteria once again susceptible to antibiotics that currently fail to kill them. The work should make it possible to solve the structure of the pump and, eventually, find ways to either block the pump's function, or to prevent the pump's being assembled.
