We present a systematic and quantitative study of the protein-protein recognition between the three tyrocidine synthetases TycA, TycB, and TycC investigated with two artificial in trans assay systems, which had been previously developed: the "DKP assay system" for the interaction of TycA with TycB and the "L/D-Phe-L-Asn assay system" for the interaction of(More)
Many pharmacologically important agents are assembled on multimodular nonribosomal peptide synthetases (NRPSs) whose modules comprise a set of core domains with all essential catalytic functions necessary for the incorporation and modification of one building block. Very often, d-amino acids are found in such products which, with few exceptions, are(More)
Assembly of bioactive natural compounds through the action of nonribosomal peptide synthetases (NRPSs) relies on the specific interplay of modules and domains along these multiple mega-enzymes. As the C termini of several bacterial NRPSs often harbor epimerization (E) domains that generate D-amino acids, these seem to facilitate the ordered intermolecular(More)
