Nourseothricin (streptothricin) inactivated by a plasmid pIE636 encoded acetyl transferase of Escherichia coli: location of the acetyl group.

Escherichia coli strains harbouring the plasmid pIE636 are able to synthesize acetylcoenzyme A: streptothricin acetyltransferase (ACSAT). The (enzymatic) N-acetylation of streptothricin F is known to contribute significantly towards the loss of antibacterial activity. 13C-NMR analysis of [14C]N-acetyl-labelled streptothricin F, produced by ACSAT-catalysed acetylation of streptothricin F and subsequent purification by various chromatographical steps, unequivocally revealed streptothricin F to be acetylated at the beta-amino group (C16) (and not at the epsilon-amino group (C19)).[1]
