Genetic organization of the marRAB operon

MarR is an autorepressor that normally maintains mar operon expression at a low level. In the presence of inducers such as salicylate (SAL), MarR repressor activity is antagonized, resulting in increased levels of MarA and, consequently, increased antibiotic resistance.
