Background: The increasing rate of infections caused by multiple drug resistant gram-negative bacteria has led to resuscitation of colistin. As a result, colistin resistance, mainly among Klebsiella pneumoniae strains has also been increased. The aim of this study was to investigate molecular mechanisms behind colistin resistance.
