Lipodepsipeptides (LPDs) are a group of cyclic, acylated peptides produced by several Pseudomonas species. They are usually divided in two groups, mycins and peptins, on the basis of the size of the amino acidic part of the molecule. Mycins have a ring of 9 amino acids closed between the first and the last residue, peptins contain a more complex peptide moiety of up to 25 amino acids, partially cyclized. Both mycins and peptins attack the plasma membrane, but may have different target organisms… CONTINUE READING
