Abstract: Abstract Klebsiella pneumoniae is an important cause of multidrug‐resistant infections worldwide. Recent studies highlight the emergence of multidrug‐resistant K. pneumoniae strains which show resistance to colistin, a last‐line antibiotic, arising from mutational inactivation of the mgrB regulatory gene. However, the precise molecular resistance mechanisms of mgrB‐associated colistin resistance and its impact on virulence remain unclear. Here, we constructed an mgrB gene K. pneumoniae mutant and performed cha…
