The Streptococcus mitis-oralis subgroup of viridans group streptococci are important human pathogens. We previously showed that a substantial portion of S. mitis-oralis strains (>25%) are 'destined' to develop rapid, high-level, and stable daptomycin (DAP) resistance (DAP-R) during DAP exposures in vitro. Such DAP-R is often accompanied by perturbations in distinct membrane phenotypes and metabolic pathways. The current study evaluated two S. oralis bloodstream isolates, 73 and 205. Strain 73 developed stable, high-level DAP-R (minimum inhibitory concentration [MIC] > 256 µg/mL) within 2 days of in vitro DAP passage ("high level" DAP-R [HLDR]). In contrast, strain 205 evolved low-level and unstable DAP-R (MIC = 8 µg/mL) under the same exposure conditions in vitro ("non-HLDR"). Comparing the parental 73 vs. 73-D2 (HLDR) strain-pair, we observed the 73-D2 had the following major differences: (i) altered cell membrane (CM) phospholipid profiles, featuring the disappearance of phosphatidylglycerol (PG) and cardiolipin (CL), with accumulation of the PG-CL pathway precursor, phosphatidic acid (PA); (ii) enhanced CM fluidity; (iii) increased DAP surface binding; (iv) reduced growth rates; (v) decreased glucose utilization and lactate accumulation; and (vi) increased enzymatic activity within the glycolytic (i.e., lactate dehydrogenase [LDH]) and lipid biosynthetic (glycerol-3-phosphate dehydrogenase [GPDH]) pathways. In contrast, the 205 (non-HLDR) strain-pair did not show these same phenotypic or metabolic changes over the 2-day DAP exposure. WGS analyses confirmed the presence of mutations in genes involved in the above glycolytic and phospholipid biosynthetic pathways in the 73-D2 passage variant. These data suggest that S. oralis strains which are 'destined' to rapidly develop HLDR do so via a conserved cadre of genotypic, membrane phenotypic, and metabolic adaptations.
