This product is specific for the 3D polymer complex structure of peptidoglycan (PG). In a competitive immunoassay format, several compounds were found to be ineffective as inhibitors; muramyldipeptide, N-acetylglucosamine, chitin and acid hydrolyzed chitin. The epitope appears to consist of discontinuous glycan and/or amino acid residues and has not been fully defined.
