Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) leads to serious infections, but it is not known whether it changes the expression of kidney drug metabolizing enzymes during infection. The mice were infected with different doses of MRSA and the oxidative stress and inflammation levels in the kidney were examined. The mRNA expression and activity of cytochrome P450 enzyme was analysed. Mice infected with high levels of MRSA showed a decrease in renal antioxidant capability and an elevated

The levels of interleukin 1β, tumour necrosis factor alpha, and macrophage inflammatory protein-1α were significantly increased along with the levels of nitric oxide and malondialdehyde. On day 7, mRNA expression of Cyp1a2, 2d22, and 3a11 were decreased by the high level of MRSA, but the low level of MRSA increased their expressions. Cyp2e1 mRNA expression was increased by MRSA in the kidney of mice. High dose of MRSA infection increased the oxidative stress and inflammatory response in mouse kidney, leading to the decrease in the expression of renal drug-metabolizing enzymes and no recovery within 7 days.
