Abstract

Various peptidoglycan fragments, different in mode of cross-linking and molecular size, were isolated, and the elicitor activity was tested for induction of antibacterial protein synthesis in larvae of Bombyx mori. Linear uncross-linked peptidoglycans from Bacillus licheniformis and Micrococcus luteus were effective elicitors, similar to the directly cross-linked peptidoglycan from B. licheniformis cell wall. The fragments of uncross-linked peptidoglycan with a sugar chain length of four or more were active elicitors, but the disaccharide unit had no elicitor activity. The minimum structure of peptidoglycan required for induction of antibacterial protein synthesis was determined to be two repeating N-acetylglucosamine-N-acetylmuramic acid units with peptide side chains.
