Interaction of beta-iodopenicillanate with the beta-lactamases of Streptomyces albus G and Actinomadura R39.

Abstract

The beta-lactamases of Streptomyces albus G and Actinomadura R39 are inactivated by beta-iodopenicillanate. However, in contrast with the beta-lactamase I from Bacillus cereus, they also efficiently catalyse the hydrolysis of the inactivator; with the S. albus G enzyme, kcat. is larger than 25s-1 and the number of turnovers before inactivation is 515. With the A. R39 enzyme, kcat. is larger than 50s-1 and the number of turnovers before inactivation is 80. After hydrolysis of the beta-lactam amide bond, the product rearranges into 2.3-dihydro-2,2-dimethyl-1,4-thiazine-3,6-dicarboxylate, which exhibits an absorption maximum at 305 nm.
