Alterations induced by penicillin in the protein profile and cell structure of Group GStreptococcus


We investigated the effect of a subminimal concentration of penicillin on the ultrastructure and protein profile of Group G streptococci. In cells treated with penicillin (1/3 MIC), the protein content increased by 50%, and several protein bands with a molecular mass of 14–70 kDa were detected. In the hydrophilic phase, carbohydrate-containing proteins were… (More)
