beta lactam listeria monocytogenes penicillin binding proteins radiolabelled penicillin carbapenem cephalosporin penicillin binding

Penicillin-binding proteins (PBP) and Lmo0441 (a PBP-like protein) play a role in beta-lactam sensitivity of Listeria monocytogenes (2009)

Abstract While seven penicillin-binding proteins (PBPs) or PBP-like proteins have been identified either by radiolabelled penicillin binding studies or genomic analysis, only PBP3 has been considered of interest for Beta-lactams activity against Listeria monocytogenes. Herein we reveal that both PBP4 and Lmo0441 (a PBP-like protein) play a direct role in cephalosporin activity in L. monocytogenes while PBP4 additionally has a protective affect against both penicillin and carbapenem.
