Abstract

Summary: Ribosomes from are sensitive to puromycin and, to a lesser extent, to the puromycin-precursor -demethyl-puromycin. The puromycin-inactivating enzyme (puromycin -acetyltransferase) from S. alboniger also -acetylates demethyl-puromycin. This finding indicates that in certain antibiotic-producing organisms the antibiotic-inactivating enzymes may play a role in self-defence against toxic precursor molecules.
