The Aminocephalosporin Antibiotics

Aminocephalosporin antibiotics (below left) have a ß-aletheine-like moiety embedded in their base structure. Like ß-aletheine (below center), they lack the terminal carboxyl moiety of vitaletheine (below right). It would be interesting to determine how much of the antibiotic properties attributed to the aminocephalosporins arise from a stimulation of cytolytic antibody production that is typical of immune responses to ß-alethine.
