RNA-polymerase binding protein

Resistance to rifampin can be mediated through increased transcription of gene targets that are otherwise inhibitted by rifampin. This increased transcriptional activity is mediated by the rbpA gene, which confers basal resistance to rifampin and is a regulator of rRNA synthesis.
