The more sensitive of the two enzymes is the primary target. In general, DNA gyrase is the primary target in Gramnegative bacteria and topoisomerase IV is the primary target in Gram-positive bacteria. Resistance develops progressively by stepwise mutations. The first step in increasing resistance level results from amino acid change in the primary target and is followed by second-step mutational modifications of amino acid in the secondary target. The higher the difference in drug potency against the two enzymes, the higher the MIC increase provided by first-step mutation.
