|Abstract:||The active efflux of antibiotics by multidrug-resistance (MDR) transporters is a major pathway of drug resistance and complicates the clinical treatment of bacterial infections. MdfA is a member of the major facilitator superfamily (MFS) from Escherichia coli and provides resistance to a wide variety of dissimilar toxic compounds, including neutral, cationic and zwitterionic substances. The 12-transmembrane-helix MdfA was expressed as a GFP-octahistidine fusion protein with a TEV protease cleavage site. Following tag removal, MdfA was purified using two chromatographic steps, complexed with a Fab fragment and further purified using size-exclusion chromatography. MdfA and MdfA–Fab complexes were subjected to both vapour-diffusion and lipidic cubic phase (LCP) crystallization techniques. Vapour-diffusion-grown crystals were of type II, with poor diffraction behaviour and weak crystal contacts. LCP lipid screening resulted in type I crystals that diffracted to 3.4 Å resolution and belonged to the hexagonal space group P622.|
