Bounaga, Sakina, Galleni, Moreno, Laws, Andrew P. and Page, Michael I. (2001) Cysteinyl peptide Inhibitors of Bacillus cereus Zinc β-Lactamase. Bioorganic & Medicinal Chemistry Letters, 9 (2). pp. 503-507. ISSN 0960-894X

Several cysteinyl peptides have been synthesised and shown to be reversible competitive inhibitors of the Bacillus cereus metallo-β-lactamase. The pH dependence of pKi indicates that the thiol anion displaces hydroxide ion from the active site zinc(II). , -Peptides bind to the enzyme better than other diastereoisomers, which is compatible with the predicted stereochemistry of the active site
