High-throughput identification of Mycobacterium avium antibiotic tolerance genes

A genome-wide transposon screen was used to elucidate M. avium genes that play a role in the bacterium’s tolerance to first- and second-line antibiotics. A total of 193 unique M. avium mutants with significantly altered susceptibility to at least one of the four clinically used antibiotics tested, including two mutants (in DFS55_00905 and DFS55_12730) with panhypersusceptibility. The products of the antibiotic tolerance genes identified may represent novel targets for future drug development studies aimed at shortening the duration of therapy for MAC infections.
