Abstract: Xenobiotic extruding pumps have recently been known to be widely distributed in living organisms from mammalian to bacteria as a host-defense mechanism in cellular level. These pumps not only confer multidrug resistance of cancer cells and pathogenic bacteria but also cause hereditary diseases through the mutation. Our purposes are to elucidate the molecular structures and mechanisms of these xenobiotic exporters.We had succeeded to determine the crystal structure of bacterial major multidrug exporter AcrB at …
