Scientists 'unmask' superbug-shielding protein

Scientists from University of Western Australia have successfully mapped three-dimensional molecular structure of EptA protein that shields superbugs from antibiotics. The EptA protein causes multi-drug resistance by masking bacteria from both the human immune system and important antibiotics. Key Facts The shape of protein was mapped using technique called X-ray crystallography which is mainly used ..
