Product Description

Bactenecin is a twelve residue antimicrobial peptide that is recognized by its disulfide linked cyclical structure. It lyses gram-negative bacteria by increasing permeability through binding lipopolysaccharides (LPS). The bactenecin/LPS conjugate forms a β-hairpin structures which integrate with the bacterial membrane, forming pores. Cytosol contents leak with pore formation and lysis occurs with higher bactenecin concentrations

Antibiotics are often used in clinical in vitro tests known as antimicrobial susceptibility tests or ASTs to determine their efficacy against certain bacterial species. They are tested against gram-negative and gram-positive bacteria using panels, discs, and MIC strips by medical microbiologists. ASTs decrease the risk of using an antibiotic against bacteria exhibiting resistance to it, and the results are used in clinical settings to determine which antibiotic(s) to prescribe for various infections.
