Applying kinetics and footprinting analysis, we show that telithromycin, a ketolide antibiotic, binds to Escherichia coli ribosomes in a two-step process. During the first, rapidly equilibrated step, telithromycin binds to a low-affinity site (K(T) = 500 nM), in which the lactone ring is positioned at the upper portion of the peptide exit tunnel, while the(More)
