streptogramins

streptogramins

Antibiotic drugs used to treat hospital-acquired infections when no other antibiotic is effective. Examples are quinupristin (Synercid), dalfoprisyin (Synercid), pristinamycin and virginiamycin.

The erm gene usually confers co-resistance to macrolides, lincosamides, and streptogramins.
95) See NRDC Petition, supra note 80, at 3-4 (listing macrolides, lincosamides, penicillins, streptogramins, tetracyclines, aminoglycosides, and sulfonamides).
aureus isolate(s) from each positive nasal swab were tested for susceptibility to the following 12 classes of antibiotics: aminoglycosides, beta-lactams, cephalosporins, fluoroquinolones, lincosamides, macrolides, oxazolidinones, rifamycin, streptogramins, sulfonamide, nitrofuran, and tetracyclines (see Table S1).
In addition, resistance to streptogramins may be related to the use of virginamycin, as a feed promoter combined in agriculture for animal food production [26].
one of the resistance mechanisms consists of ribosomal target modification, affecting macrolides, lincosamides, and type B streptogramins characterizes the so-called [MLS.

As some depsipeptides form the active part of streptogramins, an antibiotic class of compound targeting the bacterial ribosomal activity, it could be concluded that a quiescent (homoeostatic) bacterial state is unlikely to be targeted by depsipeptide-based tracers [34].

Indeed, there have been a handful of new antibiotics that have been developed over the past decade, such as the lipopeptides (daptomycin), glycylcyclines (tigecycline), oxazolidinones (linezolid) and streptogramins (quinupristin/dalfopristin).
