Disease relevance of delta

  • BMS 284756 penetrated well into inflamed meninges (44% +/- 11%) and produced good bactericidal activity (-0.82 +/- 0.22 Delta log(10) CFU/ml. h) in the treatment of experimental meningitis in rabbits due to a penicillin-sensitive strain [1].
  • Expression of lev in Escherichia coli resulted in an active FTF (Lev Delta 773His) that produced the same levan polymer [with only 2-3 % beta(2-->1-->6) branching points] as L. reuteri 121 cells grown on raffinose [2].
