D-Cycloserine is an amino acid analog antibiotic effective against a wide variety of bacteria. It is commonly used against Mycobacterium tuberculosis. It is suitable for use as a selection agent in a variety of isolation methods. D-cycloserine inhibits a variety of enzymes, is a partial NMDA receptor agonist, and may improve memory and cognition.
D-cycloserine inhibits bacterial cell wall synthesis by competitively inhibiting D-alanine, an amino acid required to synthesize peptidoglycan. Resistance to D-cycloserine occurs by D-alanine transport interference.
