Hwa, W.E.; Subramaniam, G.; Mansor, M.; Yan, O.S.; Anbazhagan, D.; Devi, S.S. (2010) Iron regulated outer membrane proteins (IROMPs) as potential targets against carbapenem-resistant Acinetobacter spp. isolated from a Medical Centre in Malaysia. The Indian journal of medical research, 131. pp. 578-83. ISSN 0971-5916Full text not available from this repository.
In this study, a 29-kDa OMP has been identified to be the major outer membrane protein in A. baumannii / calcoaceticus and loss of this porin and overexpression of IROMPs have contributed to carbapenem resistance. Polyclonal antibodies raised against IROMPs may have a role in antimicrobial therapy in these isolates.
