Comments on 1t5m » Daptomycin, Ca-free, different conformation
Daptomycin is a cyclic anionic lipopeptide antibiotic recently approved for the treatment of complicated skin infections (Cubicin). Its function is dependent on calcium (as Ca2+). The NMR structure of daptomycin indicated that Ca2+ induced a conformational change in daptomycin that increased its amphipathicity (Jung et al. 2004).
