Purified Membrane Proteins
CALIXAR’s AcrB transporter (Acriflavine resistance Protein B) is a bacterial multidrug exporter that aids in the identification, development, refinement, and validation of new molecules and therapeutic antibodies. Our AcrB transporters are exemplary for therapeutic indications such as bacterial resistance to antibiotics.
AcrB efflux pump membrane transporters are powerful therapeutic targets especially in the treatment of such conditions as bacterial resistance to antibiotics.
Acriflavine resistance Protein B (AcrB) is a bacterial multidrug exporter. AcrB is a good target for indications of bacterial resistance. Protein has a C-terminal 6X His tag.

Why choose us?
CALIXAR’s AcrB transporters enable reliable fragment-based drug design (FBDD), structure-based drug discovery (SBDD) and antibody discovery against this specific target.
Unlike CALIXAR’s AcrB transporters, other alternative strategies result in an AcrB transporter that becomes mutated and truncated.
As with all transporters, AcrB transporters are delicate targets and are difficult to manufacture natively without particular know-how. Traditionally, AcrB transporters were frequently developed in a solution that inherently cannot be pure, neither native (truncated, mutated), and consequently very unstable.
With CALIXAR’s expertise, we are capable of producing AcrB transporters that preserve the native structure and function of the target. Our AcrB transporters are pure, native, unaltered and stable. This is unparalleled on the market and at the vanguard of Membrane Protein technology.
See the application note related to the AcrB optimise thermostable composition: “A collaborative gene-to-structure workflow using cryoEM”
CALIXAR’S AcrB transporters are unaltered, unmutated and untruncated targets that sustain their structural and functional integrity. Our AcrB transporters are purified and stabilized full length and wild-type (native) proteins and are produced in a prokaryotic arrangement (E.coli).
Calixar’s AcrB transporters are used for (bio)drug discovery and are adapted for application in Pharmaceutical, biotechnology companies, as well as for academic teams that are involved in the life science disciplines.
