Application

Alaphosphin is used as a selection agent for isolation of Salmonella and as a dipeptide mimetic antibacterial agent.

Biochem/physiol Actions

Alaphosphin is an antibacterial phosphonopeptide which mimics the terminal dipeptide moiety (D-Ala-D-Ala) of bacterial cell wall peptidoglycan . It metabolizes aminophosphonic acid which inhibits alanine racemase and uridine 5-diphosphate-N-acetylmuramoylalanine synthetase.

Alaphosphin is used as a selection agent for isolation of Salmonella and as a dipeptide mimetic antibacterial agent. It metabolizes aminophosphonic acid which inhibits alanine racemase and uridine 5-diphosphate-N-acetylmuramoylalanine synthetase.
