Table 3 Resistance phenotype and transformability of RX derivatives with different combinations of PBP and StkP alleles

From: The highly conserved serine threonine kinase StkP of Streptococcus pneumoniae contributes to penicillin susceptibility independently from genes encoding penicillin-binding proteins
