Title Novel 5-Nitrofuran-Activating Reductase in Escherichia coli
Journal Antimicrobial Agents and Chemotherapy
Abstract The global spread of multidrug-resistant enterobacteria warrants new strategies to combat these pathogens. One possible approach is the reconsideration of “old” antimicrobials, which remain effective after decades of use. Synthetic 5-nitrofurans such as furazolidone, nitrofurantoin, and nitrofurazone are such a class of antimicrobial drugs.
