Lactobacillus plantarum produces peptidoglycan precursors ending in D-lactate instead of D-alanine, making the bacterium intrinsically resistant to vancomycin. The ligase Ddl of L. plantarum plays a central role in this specificity by synthesizing D-alanyl-D-lactate depsipeptides that are added to the precursor peptide chain by the enzyme MurF. Here we show ...

The glutamate-glutamine shuttle requires a flux of fixed N from neurons to astrocytes. The suggestion that some or all of this N is ammonium has received support from reports that ammonium (as NH(4)(+)) rapidly enters astrocytes. Ammonium might also help control astrocyte energy metabolism by increasing lactate production. If ammonium ...
