Crystallographic analysis of triclosan bound to enoyl reductase.

Abstract

Molecular genetic studies with strains of Escherichia coli resistant to triclosan, an ingredient of many anti-bacterial household goods, have suggested that this compound works by acting as an inhibitor of enoyl reductase (ENR) and thereby blocking lipid biosynthesis. We present structural analyses correlated with inhibition data, on the complexes of E… (More)
