OVERVIEW OF EFFLUX PUMPS ABC Transporters The ABC proteins are primary transporters that are characterized by the presence of an ABC. ABC transporters are the most diverse and largest superfamily ubiquitously present in both prokaryotes and eukaryotes. , (NBDÀTMD)2 topology [76]. TMDs are thought to create a path for solute movement across the phospholipid bilayer. Resistance of cells to chemotherapeutic agents and MDR in infectious microorganisms often arises from the overexpression of ABC transporters.

Albicans cells in biofilms, also contribute to the biofilm’s resistance to antimicrobial compounds and immune evasion [68]. C. albicans biofilm formation proceeds in three developmental phases: i. Early phase (0À11 h), involving adhesion of fungal cells to the substrate; Drug Resistance in Candida 45 ii. Intermediate phase (12À30 h), during which the blastospores coaggregate and proliferate, forming communities while producing a carbohydrate-rich ECM; iii. Maturation phase (31À72 h), in which the fungal cells are completely encased in a thick ECM [69,70].

Among the NAC species, C. glabrata has emerged as an important opportunistic pathogen worldwide. It is the second most common yeast isolated as part of normal flora and its role as a pathogen has only been recognized in the past few decades [72]. National Data Candidemia is a life-threatening fungal infection associated with a mortality rate of 38%.
