RelevanceThe peptide antibiotic Polymyxin B (PMB) binds to bacterial endotoxin
(lipopolysaccharide, LPS). The interaction of PMB with LPS involves ionic
forces between amino groups in PMB and negatively charged phosphate
and carboxyl groups in the lipid A-Kdo region. PMB has relevance for
endotoxin research in at least two ways: first, PMB reacts with LPS of
many species regardless of varied serospecificity, and thus it can be used
as a general probe for measuring or detecting LPS or lipid A. Second,
binding of PMB to LPS may result in neutralization of the detrimental
effects of LPS either in vitro or in vivo.
