The teichoic acid precursor exporter, TarGH. May be specific for the diphospholipid linked disaccharide portion of the teichoic acid precursor (Schirner et al. 2011). TarG is the target of a small antimicrobial inhibitor of S. aureus growth (Swoboda et al. 2009). TarGH is a WTA transporter and has been purified and reconstituted in proteoliposomes (Matano et al. 2017). They showed that a new compound series inhibits TarH-catalyzed ATP hydrolysis even though the binding site maps to TarG, near the opposite side of the membrane. These are the first ABC transporter inhibitors to block ATPase activity by binding to the transmembrane domain.
