Washington: A recent study by two Florida State University biochemists has found that bacteria have an innate ability to produce a large variety of proteins, which make them remarkably resilient to toxic substances, such as antibiotics.e study has made an important contribution to science`s understanding of a serious problem causing concern worldwide- the growing resistance of some harmful bacteria to the drugs that were intended to kill them.The new research was done by Assistant Professor Brian G. Miller of FSU`s Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry and one of his graduate research assistants, Kevin K. Desai.In their study, Miller and Desai learned that about 2 percent of all the proteins produced by the model bacterium E. coli can be linked to enabling resistance to a single toxin called bromoacetate.
