Purification of daptomycin binding proteins (DBPs) from the membrane of Enterococcus hirae.

Abstract

Daptomycin binding proteins (DBPs) are membrane proteins which act as daptomycin targets. Daptomycin is a cyclic lipopeptide antibiotic which is active against Gram-positive bacteria and was shown to be the first inhibitor of lipoteichoic acid (LTA) synthesis. It was found that the antibiotic did not penetrate the bacterial cytoplasm but bound membranes… (More)
