The structure and dynamics of vancomycin family of antibiotics and their complexes with cell wall precursors is investigated by NMR spectroscopy and restrained molecular dynamics simulations. The detailed knowledge of binding interactions, which can be obtained from such studies would allow design of novel biologically active substances based on vancomycin, which is important for clinical treatment of life-threatening Gram-positive bacterial infections. The understanding of exact mechanism of action of these antibiotics will explain also the function and activity of variety of other complex biological systems.
