G-CSF Receptor

The G-CSF receptor is a sort I membrane protein which belongs to the cytokine receptor superfamily, and is in particular expressed in mature neutrophils and neutrophilic precursors. Binding of G-CSF to G-CSFR induces its dimerization. The dimerized receptor transduces development and differentiation signs that are mediated by way of the N-terminal and C-terminal halves of the G-CSFR cytoplasmic area.

The target may be bypassed by acquisition of a novel metabolic pathway. • The target may be protected by production of protein which prevents the antibiotic reaching it. However, these resistance mechanisms do not exist in isolation, and two or more distinct mechanisms may interact to determine the actual level of resistance of a micro-organism to an antibiotic. Likewise, multidrug resistance is increasingly common in bacterial pathogens. It may be defined as resistance to two or more drugs or drug classes that are of therapeutic relevance.
