Abstract

Summary: A mutant of has been constructed with deletions of the genes encoding penicillin-binding protein 5 () and penicillin-binding protein 6 (). The construction of this mutant establishes that the complete loss of the two most abundant species of penicillin-binding proteins can be tolerated by . Moreover, the double deletion mutant had the same growth rate and morphology as an isogenic strain.
