Site-specific serine incorporation by Lif and Epr into positions 3 and 5 of the Staphylococcal peptidoglycan interpeptide bridge


Ehlert, K; Tschierske, M; Mori, C; Schröder, W; Berger-Bächi, B (2000). Site-specific serine incorporation by Lif and Epr into positions 3 and 5 of the Staphylococcal peptidoglycan interpeptide bridge. Journal of Bacteriology, 182(9):2635-2638.

Abstract

The FemAB-like factors Lif and Epr confer resistance to glycylglycine endopeptidases lysostaphin and Ale-1, respectively, by incorporating serine residues into the staphylococcal peptidoglycan interpeptide bridges specifically at positions 3 and 5. This required the presence of FemA and/or FemB, in contrast to earlier postulations.
