Identification and characterization of pbpC, the gene encoding Bacillus subtilis penicillin-binding protein 3.


Penicillin-binding proteins (PBPs) are enzymes involved in the synthesis of peptidoglycan structures in Bacillus subtilis such as the vegetative cell wall and the spore cortex. The B. subtilis sequencing project has identified a gene (orf16, EMBL accession number D38161) which exhibits significant sequence similarity to genes encoding class B high-molecular… (More)
