Resistance Requirementqacb    
DescriptionMultidrug efflux pump from bacterial pathogen staphylococcus aureus. Including QacA and QacB, both of which confer resistance to various toxic organic cations but differ in that QacB mediates lower levels of resistance to divalent cations. They differed by seven nucleotide subsititutions.
