Finally, the ileu–glu repeat studied originally was also observed in a clinical isolate of S. pneumoniae, and when this repeat was removed by site-directed mutagenesis, susceptibility ensued. Transformation experiments demonstrated that the duplication was sufficient to confer the sulfonamide resistance observed. 5-fold. The enzyme characteristics for the artificially mutated strain were identical to those of susceptible strains, demonstrating that the duplication is sufficient for resistance. The fitness cost of resistance seems to be low, as reflected in the small increase in the Km value.

There is no antibiotic among the 20 best-selling pharmaceuticals in Scandinavia. As mentioned earlier, resistance as a rule occurs within one or two years after the introduction of a new antibacterial agent. These circumstances mean that antibiotics are not very interesting from a marketing point of view. 32 SULFONAMIDES AND TRIMETHOPRIM SULFONAMIDES The selective effect of sulfonamides on bacteria is due to their inhibiting effect on the formation of folic acid (Fig. 1), an important coenzyme of all living cells.

The promises of these agents regarding effective control of all types of bacterial disease have largely been fulfilled by the broad array of antibacterial agents now available.
