Previous analysis of soluble peptidoglycan (PG) fragments released by exponentially growing gonococci implicated the combined action of both hexosaminidase and amidase activities in PG turnover. Current studies further characterized PG fragments which were labeled in the glycan with D-glucosamine and in the peptide moiety with meso-diaminopimelic acid of L- and D-alanine. Labeled PG fragments were isolated by gel filtration and characterized on the bases of (i) KD values, (ii) free amino group… CONTINUE READING
