The enzyme was allowed to react briefly with |''*C|benzylpemcillin or with a substrate analogue, [''*C]Ac,L~Lys-D"Ala~D~lactate; D-lactic acid is the exact hydroxyl analogue of D-alanine, and use of this derivative enabled the transient enzyme reaction intermediate to be trapped. In peptide fragments from the Bacillus stearothermophilus enzyme, radioactivity was found in a peptide with 40 amino acid residues E + I ^ EI ^ EI* ^ E + degraded inhibitor. and the label was shown to be associated with the same specific serine residue, whether the reactant was benzylpenicillin or the substrate analogue.

With remodelling of the peptidoglycan sacculus during septation and cell division. All these PBPs are targets of P-lactam antibiotics. Different p-lactams exhibit different affinities for the various PBPs and these can in turn be con-elated with different morphological effects. Drugs which bind most strongly to PBPs la and lb cause cell lysis at the lowest antibacterial concentration. Compounds such as the cephalosporin, cephalexin, bind more strongly to PBP3 and inhibit septation, leading to the fomiation of filaments, which are greatly elongated cells.

Peptidoglycan hydrolases, which hydrolyze the polysaccharide chains of peptidoglycan and others attacking the peptide cross-links, exert this essential catabolic activity during cell growth. 7 Peptidoglycan synthesis in Staphylococcus aureus. Stage 4: cross-linljing of two linear peptidoglycan chains. 6) GlcNac: A'-acetylglucosaminyl residue. The dashed arrows show points at which further cross-links may be formed with other polymer chains.
