Abstract

Antibiotic resistance is one of the most serious global problems around the world. Pseudomonas aeruginosa is gram-negative bacteria and plays important role in local and systemic infections. In our work, we tried to understand mode of antimicrobial action of ferroccene- boronic acid over Pseudomonas aeruginosa via metabolomics and proteomics analysis. In proteomics analysis, we found that ferrocene-boronic acid effects various antimicrobial targets like ATP-dependent DNA helicase RecQ, Transcription-repair-coupling factor and Primasome assembly protein PriA. In metabolomics analysis, the ferrocene-boronic acid induced various metabolites involved in pyrimidine metabolism, lipid and fatty acid metabolism. Moreover, various polyamines like spermine and spermidine, which are very important for antibiotic resistance, pathogenesis and bacterial biofilm formation were decreased by ferroceneboronic acid. We believe that our results will contribute further studies regarding organometallic compounds in microbiology filelds.
