Identification of a dithiazoline inhibitor of Escherichia coli L,D-carboxypeptidase A.

Abstract

The enzyme L,D-carboxypeptidase A is involved in the recycling of bacterial peptidoglycan and is essential in Escherichia coli during stationary phase. By high-throughput screening, we have identified a dithiazoline inhibitor of the enzyme with a 50% inhibitory concentration of 3 microM. The inhibitor appeared to cause lysis of E. coli during stationary… (More)
