Glycopeptides

Glycopeptides are peptides that contain carbohydrate moieties (glycans) covalently attached to the side chains of the amino acid residues that constitute the peptide. Glycopeptides prevent peptidoglycan synthesis by two separate mechanisms. One mechanism prevents N-acetylmuramic acid (NAM) and N-acetylglucosamine (NAG) from linking together, forming the peptidoglycan backbone. The second mechanism prevents cross-linking between amino acid residues in the peptidoglycan chain. Glycopeptides target primarily gram-positive bacteria, especially those resistant to methicillin. These include the drug resistant superbug, MRSA (methicillin resistant Staphylococcus aureus) and Enterococcus faecalis.

Bleomycin A5 hydrochloride

Catalog ID Size Pricing
B-405-10 10 mg $ 179.00
B-405-50 50 mg $ 415.00

Description

Bleomycin A5 hydrochloride is a compound part of the glycopeptide antibiotic family. It is currently used in oncology research for its strong stimulatory and inhibitory effects. Bleomycin A5 greatly reduces telomerase activity, hindering the proliferation of malignant cells. It has also been shown to induce in vivo fibrosis and inflammation by generating peroxynitrites, a strong oxidizing agent.

Bleomycin A5 stimulates downstream apoptosis by increasing cysteine-aspartic acid protease-3 (caspase-3) activity, tumor protein 53 (p53) production and transforming growth factor beta 1 (TGF-beta 1) formation. These proteins induce apoptosis directly or indirectly by halting cell growth.

Bleomycin Sulfate, USP Grade

Catalog ID Size Pricing
B-910-10 10 mg $ 122.00
B-910-50 50 mg $ 423.00

Description

Bleomycin Sulfate is an anti-cancer agent isolated from Streptomyces verticillus. Bleomycin is a mixture of bleomycin A2 and bleomycin B2, in an approximately 2:1 ratio, respectively. However, the ratio varies by lot number.

Bleomycin is used against Hodgkin’s lymphoma. Its mechanism is not well understood; however, it is though that bleomycin chelates metallic ions causing a decrease in enzyme stability. The enzymes react with oxygen and produce free radicals, ultimately causing single-stranded breaks in deoxyribose sugars of DNA.
