Oxygen Limitation Enhances the Antimicrobial Activity of Fosfomycin in Pseudomonas aeruginosa Following Overexpression of glpT Which Encodes Glycerol-3-Phosphate/Fosfomycin Symporter

Fosfomycin is resurfacing as a “last resort drug” to treat infections caused by multidrug resistant pathogens. This drug has a remarkable benefit in that its activity increases under oxygen-limited conditions unlike other commonly used antimicrobials such as β-lactams, fluoroquinolones and aminoglyc...
