Abstract

This paper reports the first attempt to characterize the penicillin-binding proteins (PBPs) of an important human pathogen. The PBP pattern of the membranes of closely resembles that of membranes. A 38 kDa PBP which is an important target for the penem SCH34343, the cephamycin cefoxitin and the oxacephem moxalactam, has been purified. This PBP is immunologically related to a PBP of similar molecular mass in and is present at high levels in stationary-phase cells of
