The titration of 13C labelled N-acetyl-D-ala-D-ala with the glycopeptide antibiotics ristocetin A and eremomycin, monitored by 13C NMR spectroscopy, demonstrates that the two distinct binding sites of the ristocetin A asymmetric dimer have different affinities, whereas those of eremomycin show no detectable difference.
