CYP2E1 and amidase play important roles in the metabolic pathways of isoniazid and pyrazinamide.
Bioinformatics analysis showed that these genes participated in biological pathways including drug transport, drug response, amidase transport, hydrolase activity, transferase activity, along with an amidase transmembrane transporter, efflux transmembrane transporter, bacterial chemotaxis, ABC transporters, and a b-lactam resistance gene, all of which may be related to multidrug resistance in the isolate strain of C.
