OBJECTIVES To investigate the function of penicillin-binding protein 2 (PBP 2) in Pseudomonas aeruginosa PAO1. METHODS The growth and morphology of P. aeruginosa cultured in the absence and presence of mecillinam was assessed. The gene encoding PBP 2, pbpA, was identified in the genome of P. aeruginosa PAO1 and both its full-length and an engineered(More)
The penicillin-binding proteins (PBPs) are peripheral membrane enzymes that catalyze the final steps for the biosynthesis of the essential bacterial cell wall heteropolymer peptidoglycan. Bacteria produce a number and variety of PBPs which are classified as either high molecular weight or low molecular weight PBPs. The high molecular weight PBPs are(More)
