cell wall synthesis enzyme targeted by antibiotic

Accession ARO:3000709
DefinitionCell wall biosynthesis provides bacteria with a layer of peptidoglycan that provides rigidity and protects the cell from lysis due to osmotic pressure. Cell wall structures vary significantly between Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacteria, while mycobacteria have a unique cell wall composition.
