Ethambutol resistant arabinosyltransferase

The arabinosyltransferases are the target of the drug ethambutol, which is used to inhibit the proliferation of Mycobacterium tuberculosis. Resistance to ethambutol can occur when the emb proteins, which encode the arabinosyltransferases, are overexpressed.
