  • a Sequences are shown in the one-letter amino acid code. In the first two sequences, the sequences for polymyxin B and colistin, fa indicates a 6-methyloctanoyl or 6-methylheptanoyl fatty acid chain, B indicates α,γ-diaminobutirate, and a superscripted L indicates that the amino acid is the L-enantiomer. For the remaining sequences, -NH2 indicates amidation of the carboxyl terminus and numbered cysteines represent residues joined by disulfide bonds.
