EF-Tu inhibition

Elongation Factor Tu (EF-Tu) is the primary target of the elfamycins. Resistance to the elfamycin class can occur via mutations in EF-Tu, which evade the mechanism of action of the elfamycin drugs. These mutations must be present for the EF-Tu to be resistant, therefore screening for these mutations is required to detect resistance via this mechanism.
