Abstract

The activity of the bacitracin synthetase of ATCC 10716 is influenced by divalent metal ions (Mg, Mn, Fe or Co) and by bacitracin. It is possible that complexes between bacitracin and metal ions exert feedback control on the synthetase. An overall control mechanism for bacitracin synthetase may consist of substrate-metal ion complexes and product-metal ion complexes.
