This study investigated the effects of 2,3-dihydroxybenzoic acid (DHB) on the growth of E. coli in the presence of antibiotics with different mechanisms of action. DHB is a natural metabolite found in certain plants and a minor by-product of human aspirin metabolism. Results showed that E. coli treated with DHB exhibited resistance to vancomycin, tetracycline, and nalidixic acid, suggesting that DHB may have potential implications for induced antibiotic resistance. Further research is needed to determine the antibiotics affected and explore the potential therapeutic applications of metabolites.
