Contribution of penicillin-binding protein homologs to antibiotic resistance, cell morphology, and virulence of Listeria monocytogenes EGDe. (2006)

Abstract Seven open reading frames, annotated as potential penicillin-binding-protein-encoding genes (lmo0441, lmo0540, lmo1438, lmo1892, lmo2039, lmo2229, and lmo2754), were targeted for insertional mutagenesis in Listeria monocytogenes EGDe. These genes were found to contribute in various degrees to beta-lactam resistance, cell morphology, or the virulence potential of this organism.
