Ações bioquímicas/fisiológicas

Lysostaphin is a zinc endopeptidase with a molecular weight of approximately 25 kDa. Because lysostaphin cleaves the polyglycine cross-links in the peptidoglycan layer of the cell wall of Staphylococcus species it has been found useful for cell lysis and also as a potential anti-microbial therapeutic.
pH Optimum for activity: ~7.5

Definição da unidade

One unit will reduce the turbidity (A620) of a suspension of Staphylococcus aureus cells from 0.250 to 0.125 in 10 min at pH 7.5 at 37 °C in a 6.0 ml reaction mixture.

Staphylococcus aureus (SA) bacteremia often requires a long treatment duration with antibiotics to prevent relapse due to the ability of SA to establish reservoirs of infection in sites such as heart and bone. These metastatic sites of infection cannot be...

Resistance to lysostaphin, a staphylolytic glycylglycine endopeptidase, is due to a FemABX-like immunity protein that inserts serines in place of some glycines in peptidoglycan cross bridges. These modifications inhibit both binding of the recombinant cell wall targeting domain and catalysis...

Mesh and wound infections during hernia repair are predominantly caused by Staphylococcus aureus. Human acellular dermis (HAD) is known to lose its integrity in the face of large bacterial loads. The goal of this study was to determine if lysostaphin...

Naturally occurring antimicrobial peptides are possibly the "next frontier" in infection prevention. Binding them to mesh could reduce the rate of mesh infections. This study identifies an antimicrobial agent capable of significant antibacterial activity when bound to mesh. Lysozyme, human...

A modified pulsed-field gel electrophoresis (PFGE) protocol was developed and applied to clinical isolates of Staphylococcus aureus and enterococci to reduce the cost of using lysostaphin. This protocol reduces the expenses of PFGE typing of S. aureus and enterococci as...
