Benzylpenicillin differentially conjugates to IFN-gamma, TNF-alpha, IL-1beta, IL-4 and IL-13 but selectively reduces IFN-gamma activity.

Abstract

It is known that beta-lactam antibiotics can conjugate to lysine and histidine residues on proteins via the carbonyl group of the opened beta-lactam ring. However, it is not known which proteins these drugs target and there is little work addressing whether conjugation is preferential for some proteins over others or if conjugation has functional… (More)
