Cationic antimicrobial peptide efflux pumps

Efflux pumps are a common mechanism for resistance to antimicrobial substances; for the drug to be effective, it must reach its target within the bacterial cell. Efflux pumps prevent this usually through active transport. The RosA/B genes have been identified as acting on the cationic antimicrobial peptides.
