One of the major problems associated with antibiotic resistance is the presence of multidrug resistant bacteria. The problem arises not only with the ability of the bacteria to resist the effects of many drugs, but also with the fact that many of the available treatments for multidrug-resistant bacteria harmfully affects the human microbiota. The LiaFSR system may be the answer to the problem of MDR bacteria. This system plays a major role in in the responses against

Bacteria can develop this resistance through mutations as well as when a bacteria obtains a new DNA helicase. When there is a mutated bacterium, the antimicrobial, in many cases, has a problem recognizing the genetic material of the bacteria. This being said, if the antimicrobial does not have the chance to locate the binding site on the bacterial DNA, the drug will not have the chance to act. Fluroquinolones are a perfect example of how bacteria can develop resistance through resistance.

Antibiotic resistance is a phenomenon in which microorganisms undergo a genetic mutation that allows them to withstand the effects of antibiotic agents designed to kill them or make them incapable of reproduction. To understand antibiotic resistance, it is important to understand what antibiotics are and the mechanisms behind these drugs that affect diseases. Antibiotics are chemical agents that specifically target certain bacterial strains and disable the bacteria by preventing their reproduction and growth. Before or right when symptoms start occurring in a body following an infection, usually the white blood cells of the human body can cope with the infection. But when it gets past the power of WBCs, antibiotics are prescribed to prevent permanent damage to the body, permanent internal damage, sepsis or even death.
By determining these factors, the future of the organism can be determined and lives can be saved. Today, many new diseases are being examined in hopes of containing ailments and treating those who have contracted them. One such ailment is an organism called New Delhi Metallo-beta-lactamase, more commonly known as NDM-1. New Delhi Metallo-beta-lactamase is a potentially dangerous organism due to the bacteria in which it thrives, its chemical structure, and antibiotic resistance. NDM-1 itself is classified as an enzyme that contains the blaNDM-1 gene.
To perform either of these functions, antibiotics must be brought into contact with the bacteria. It is believed that antibiotics interfere with the surface of bacteria cells, causing a change in their ability to reproduce.

In doing this the bacterium is limiting the amount of access points into it. By doing this the antibiotics will struggle to get into the bacterium, making it more resistant.

A loss in TLR signalling can cause inflammation when the epithelium is infected by pathogenic bacteria. Paneth cells are AMP secretary cells in the crypts of Lieberkuhn, which defend the host . AMPs are the primary interactions with commensals and host cells within the innate immune response and directly kill pathogens and create a feedback loop (Fig3). In humans they are secreted into the blood and provoke defensin production.

Introduction: Antibiotics have the ability to kill or hinder the growth of bacteria. Antibiotics contain compounds that are naturally produced by organisms to combat diseases caused by microbes. Discovery of penicillin by Sir Alexander Fleming became the first stepping stone of many new antibiotics of today’s modern medicine. Antibiotics typically invade the very components that make up bacteria, such as cell walls and metabolic pathways (Sato et al., 2014). However, frequent mutations of bacteria cause today’s strains to become more resistant.
Bacterial resistance is the result of evolutionary responses. One cause of resistance is through mutation. In some instances, proteins used to build the cell are altered to bind penicillin poorly or not at all. A second type of resistance occurs when the bacteria preemptively breaks down penicillin into harmless by-products before they have the chance to bind with the cell wall. A greater cause for concern is the fact that "bacteria may reproduce with different bacterial species passing on resistance" to bacteria that did not previously possess the ability to resist any drugs.3 Humans are the predominant cause for drug resistance.
