AcrA is the periplasmic lipoprotein component of the AcrAB-TolC multidrug efflux pump in Escherichia coli and can function in chimeric constructions with three other RND-family pumps, AcrD, AcrF and MdtF(YhiV). The C-terminal domain of AcrA is functionally significant [Ge09a] and a small region located near the C-terminus has been shown to be necessary for interaction with AcrB [Elkins03]. A stable fragment of AcrA has been crystallized and its three-dimensional structure determined [Mikolosko06].

The structure of E.coli AcrA has been modelled on the basis of crystallographic data from Pseudomonas aeruginosa [Higgins04, Symmons09]. The intermolecular contacts between AcrA and AcrB have been mapped using an in vivo cross-linking approach and the AcrAB complex has been modelled [Symmons09].

acrA is one of a network of genes believed to play a role in promoting the stress-induced mutagenesis (SIM) response of E. coli K-12 [Al12].

Subunit of: AcrAD-TolC multidrug efflux system

Subunit composition of AcrAD-TolC multidrug efflux system = [AcrD]3[AcrA][(TolC)3]
         AcrAD-TolC multidrug efflux system - permease subunit = AcrD (summary available)
         AcrAB-TolC multidrug efflux system - membrane fusion protein = AcrA (extended summary available)
         TolC outer membrane channel = (TolC)3 (extended summary available)
                 TolC monomer = TolC

AcrD is a member of the resistance-nodulation-division (RND) family [Saier94]. RND family transporters interact with membrane fusion proteins (MFPs) and outer membrane channels for transport of their substrates into the external medium. AcrD is believed to form a tripartite complex with AcrA (an MFP) and TolC for multidrug transport. AcrD shows amino acid sequence similarity with the E. coli RND multidrug efflux proteins AcrB and AcrF.

AcrD was shown to require AcrA for aminoglycoside transport when reconstituted into proteoliposomes [Aires05]. AcrAD are believed to form a complex with TolC for multidrug export [Aires05]. Experiments using proteoliposomes show the AcrAD-TolC complex is able to transport drugs from both the cytoplasm and the periplasm to the extracellular space [Aires05]. AcrD was shown to export streptomycin, but only from the periplasm [Aires05]. AcrD was also shown to bind cisplatin [Will08]. Linear α-helical cathelicidin LL-37 and β-sheet defensins HNP-1-3, hBD-2/-3 and HD-5 are not substrates for AcrAB [Rieg09].

Disruption of the acrD gene did not result in hypersusceptibility to lipophilic and amphiphilic drugs, but did result in hypersusceptibility to a variety of aminoglycosides including amikacin, gentamicin, tobramycin, kanamycin, neomycin, erythromycin, and polymyxin B [Rosenberg00]. The mutants also accumulated more dihydrostreptomycin and gentamicin than the parental strain [Rosenberg00]. Treatment with CCCP increased aminoglycoside accumulation suggesting that efflux of aminoglycosides is energized by the proton-motive force [Rosenberg00]. Expression of acrD on a multicopy plasmid from native or IPTG inducible promoters in an acrAB mutant resulted in increased resistance to deoxycholate, SDS, novobiocin, kanamycin, tetracycline, nalidixic acid, norfloxacin, fosfomycin [Nishino01], bile acids, fusidic acid [Elkins02a], and progesterone [Elkins06]. AcrADTolC confers stronger resistance to anionic β-lactams (aztreonam, carbenicillin, sulbenicillin) than AcrABTolC [Nishino03a]. The two large periplasmic loops of AcrD are implicated in substrate specificity [Elkins02a, Kobayashi14a].

In one study, disruption of acrA or tolC did not result in hypersensitivity to aminoglycosides [Rosenberg00]. Since aminoglycosides do not cross the inner membrane spontaneously, it was suggested that AcrD simply transports the hydrophilic molecules to the periplasm and does not require other proteins for aminoglycoside transport across the outer membrane [Rosenberg00]. Later studies showed AcrA was required for transport of cholic acid, taurocholic acid, and novobiocin by AcrD [Elkins02a], and that acrA mutants were as susceptible to aminoglycosides as acrD mutants [Aires05]. AcrD and AcrA have also been shown to interact through chemical crosslinking studies [Elkins02a]. These results suggest that AcrD interacts with AcrA and TolC for transport of at least some substrates [Elkins02a].

BaeR is responsible for activation of acrD transcription [Hirakawa03a], and this activation is enhanced by CpxR [Hirakawa05]. Indole was shown to activate BaeR and CpxR leading to acrD transcription [Hirakawa05]. Iron depletion led to reduced expression of acrD [Bleuel05].

Enzymatic reaction of: multidrug transport (AcrAD-TolC multidrug efflux system)

Transport reaction diagram for multidrug transport

AcrADTolC exports substrates from the periplasm and from the cytoplasm according to the following reactions:
drug(periplasmic space) + H+(periplasmic space) ===> drug(extracellular) + H+(cytoplasm)

drug(cytoplasm) + H+(periplasmic space) ===> drug(extracellular) + H+(cytoplasm)

Subunit of: AcrAB-TolC multidrug efflux system

Subunit composition of AcrAB-TolC multidrug efflux system = [AcrA]6[(TolC)3][AcrB]3
         AcrAB-TolC multidrug efflux system - membrane fusion protein = AcrA (extended summary available)
         TolC outer membrane channel = (TolC)3 (extended summary available)
                 TolC monomer = TolC
         AcrAB-TolC multidrug efflux system - permease subunit = AcrB (extended summary available)

AcrAB and TolC make up a three-component proton motive force-dependent multidrug efflux system which confers resistance to multiple antimicrobial agents. The complex is the major contributor to the intrinsic resistance of E. coli to organic solvents [Tsukagoshi00], dyes and detergents as well as lipophilic antibiotics including novobiocin, erythromycin, fusidic acid and cloxacillin. The AcrAB-TolC system is a significant contributor to the intrinsic resistance of E. coli to bile acids [Thanassi97].The AcrAB-TolC complex confers only weak reistance to anionic β-lactams (aztreonam, carbenicillin, sulbenicillin) [Nishino03a].The acrAB locus encodes for two of the complex proteins, AcrA and AcrB. AcrA is a periplasmic lipoprotein component which is a member of the membrane fusion protein (MFP) family and is anchored to the inner membrane's outer surface by its lipid moiety. AcrB is an RND-type inner-membrane associated efflux pump. Reconstitution studies suggest that AcrB is a proton-substrate antiporter [Zgurskaya99]. The crystal structure of the AcrB trimer reveals an asymmetric assembly of the monomers and suggests a functionally rotating, three step (access, binding, and extrusion), peristaltic pump mechanism for the export of substrates [Seeger06, Murakami06, Pos09]. The small membrane protein AcrZ associates with AcrAB-TolC and may affect the specificity of drug export [Hobbs12].

AcrABTolC provides minimal reistance to ethidium and acriflavine in an emrE mdfA double null background [Tal09] suggesting that tripartite pumps may act cooperatively with single component major facilitator superfamily (MFS) and small multidrug resistance (SMR) transporters to export hydrophobic drugs/toxins from the cytoplasm in a two step process [Lee00d, Tal09].

Expression of the complex is constitutive and does not require the presence of substrate [Touze04]. Overexpression of the complex components results in significant levels of resistance to other common antibiotics such as tetracycline and chloramphenicol [Okusu96].

AcrA and AcrB were found as homotrimers within the inner membrane and assemble with trimeric TolC to form the efflux pump [Stenberg05]. Genetic, cross-linking, and protein purification studies suggest that the TolC channel associates with AcrAB to form a tri-partite complex spanning the entire cell envelope [Fralick96, Gerken04, Tikhonova04, Touze04]. Cross-linking studies [Zgurskaya00] suggest that AcrA interacts with AcrB as an oligomeric trimer or dimer and that the AcrA/AcrB complex can exist in a stable state associated with the inner membrane independently of the TolC outer membrane channel. A small region of AcrA located near its C-terminus has been shown to be necessary for interaction with AcrB [Elkins03]. Cross-linking and titration calorimetry studies reveal interaction between AcrB and AcrA as well as interaction between AcrA and TolC, suggesting a role for AcrA as an adaptor between AcrB and TolC [Touze04, Husain04]. Interaction between AcrA and TolC is important for export [Stegmeier06a]. Cross-linking studies have also suggested a direct interaction between TolC and AcrB [Touze04, Tamura05].

The structure of E.coli AcrA has been modelled on the basis of crystallographic data from Pseudomonas aeruginosa [Higgins04, Symmons09]. The intermolecular contacts between AcrA and AcrB have been mapped using an in vivo cross-linking approach and the AcrAB complex has been modelled [Symmons09]. A complete assembly of the AcrAB-TolC complex has been modelled [Symmons09].

Fusion proteins of AcrA-AcrB, AcrA-AcraZ and TolC remain associated during purification and the purified complex retains partial activity. A pseudo-atomic model of the complex has been constructed which comprises an AcrB trimer, an AcrA hexamer and TolC trimer. In the model no direct interaction between AcrB and TolC is observed, rather AcrA acts as a bridge between them [Du14].
