13) The efflux pumps are comprised of three proteins: an RND exporter protein embedded in the cytoplasmic membrane that is an energy-dependent pump, a membrane fusion protein in the periplasmic space that links the RND exporter protein to the third protein, an outer membrane porin.
It may assist the activity of the drugs by increasing the non specific permeability of the cell or by acting on different targets on the cytoplasmic membrane, thus enhancing the damage done to the bacteria.
