Mechanism Of Action
Vancomycin prevents integration of N-acetylmuramic acid (NAM)- and N-acetylglucosamine (NAG)-peptide subunits from being unified into the peptidoglycan intercellular substance; which makes the major functional constituent of Gram-positive cell walls. The sizable hydrophilic molecule is capable to make hydrogen bond interactions with the endmost D-alanyl-D-alanine portions of the NAM/NAG-peptides. The binding of vancomycin to the D-Ala-D-Ala precludes the consolidation of the NAM/NAG-peptide subunits into the peptidoglycan substance and changes bacterial-cell-membrane porosity as well as RNA synthesis.
