Quite an informative lecture. Helpful in breaking down complex concepts.

Well explained details on mechanism of action --> also relates to vancomycin mechanism of action
By Nicholas C. on 27. October 2019 for Peptidoglycan – Beta Lactam Antibiotics

I watched the glycopeptide pharmacology lecture, wanted more details on the mechanism of action, segwayed to antimicrobial resistance, then segwayed to "Peptidoglycans - Beta Lactam Antibiotics" video lecture. The D-Alanine-D-Alanine concept also relates to the mechanism of action of vancomycin.
