An efficient reliable and sensitive capillary zone electrophoresis assay for the six major bacterial peptidoglycan-associated proteins of Escherichia coli NCIB 8545 is described. The method provides the facility to determine quantitatively the effect of antibacterials on bacterial peptidoglycan-associated protein synthesis and thus to further elucidate the mechanism of antibacterial action of such drugs as the antifolates which recently have been shown to adversely affect peptidoglycan… CONTINUE READING
