    ペニシリン耐性肺炎球菌(PRSP)は、類縁の他菌種からベータラクタム系薬の標的分子、ペニシリン結合タンパク質(PBP)遺伝子の一部を受け取り、ベータラクタム系薬耐性を獲得してきた。近年、PBPsにさらにアミノ酸置換を集積させ、最後の切り札と言われるカルバペネム系薬に耐性を獲得した肺炎球菌が、我が国で分離されたが、本耐性菌のカルバペネム耐性を付与した他菌種のリザーバーは不明である。本研究課題では、「肺炎球菌は、どのようにしてカルバペネム耐性化したのか?どの菌種からカルバペネム耐性遺伝子を受け取ったのか?」という学術的問いに対し、NGS解析等を通して、遺伝子共有、水平伝播、カルバペネム耐性化の様子を明らかにする。

    It was revealed that carbapenem non-susceptible S. mitis / oralis has acquired multiple base substitutions with amino acid substitutions in the target molecule of carbapenem drugs, PBP genes . Interestingly, among those amino acid substitutions, some strains have amino acid substitutions in the conservative region of the transpeptidase domain of PBPs that forms the active site, where β-lactam antibiotics are expected to bind.
    In addition, the introduction of the mutant PBP gene into the S. mitis / oralis standard strain increased the minimum inhibitory concentration of β-lactams, and thus It became clear that the mutation of the PBP gene confer toreduced β-lactams susceptibility.

    Emerging of drug-resistant bacteria is a major clinical concern. Thus, it is essential to develop new antibiotics and agents to overcome the problem of drug-resistant bacteria. To respond to the aforementioned urgent and unmet needs, we have screened for metallo-beta-lactamase (MBL) inhibitor. MBL inhibitor can revive the efficacy of carbapenem antibiotics. We have screened 2107 small molecule compounds to identify IMP-1 inhibitor, IMP-1 is the dominant MBL in clinically isolated Enterobacteriaceae. Enzymatic and biological analyses revealed that 8 compounds would be candidates of IMP-1 inhibitor. These 8 compounds would be a great help to overcome carbapenem resistance caused by production of IMP-type MBL.
