Understanding the Biosynthesis of the Glycopeptide Antibiotics

The glycopeptide antibiotics (GPAs) are a structurally complex and medically important class of peptide natural products that include the clinical antibiotics vancomycin and teicoplanin. 1 They contain a large number of non-proteinogenic amino acids and are produced by a linear non-ribosomal peptide synthetase (NRPS) machinery comprising seven modules. 2Furthermore, GPAs are extensively crosslinke…
