Vancomycin
Description:
Vancomycin is an aminoglycoside antibiotic. The main target of this antibiotic is the D-alanyl-D-alanine terminal dipeptide of peptidoglycan precursors, used by bacteria for constructing their cell walls. This prevents the reaction used to link peptidoglycan precursors together from taking place. Vancomycin binds with the substrate, not the enzyme: this is in contrast to the way penicillin inhibits peptidoglycan synthesis.

Applications:
Suitable for use in ELISA and Immunofluorescence. Other applications not tested.

Recommended Dilutions:
Optimal dilutions to be determined by the researcher.
