Abstract

SUMMARY: In inhibition by both benzylpenicillin and cefotaxime of cells growing at maximal and at reduced rates was associated with saturation of different penicillin-binding proteins. Cells growing at reduced rates were not inhibited by benzylpenicillin concentrations that saturated all penicillin-binding proteins except penicillin-binding protein 5, but did stop growing when this protein was saturated.
