Biosynthesis of bacitracin - ResearchGate
Enzyme-Bound Intermediates in the Biosynthesis of Bacitracin
Fermentation media used for the production of bacitracin by cells were either natural, like soya bean extract and beef extract, or minimal media containing different carbon and nitrogen sources like amino acids, carbohydrates (glucose and sucrose) and some s (Rabinovitch and Filho, 1982; Hanlon and Hodges, 1981). Biosynthesis of bacitracin in solid-state fermentation by using defatted oil seed cakes of agricultural by-products was recently reported (Farzana ., 2005).
Enhancement of bacitracin biosynthesis by branched …
It inhibits, like vancomycin, the biosynthesis of the cell wall, preferentially gram positive bacteria and cocci, by binding to bactoprenyl pyrophosphate.
: Bacitracin is employed as a protease inhibitor, too.
