    In eubacteria, the formyl group of nascent polypeptides is removed by peptide deformylase protein (PDF). This is the reason why PDF has received special attention in the course of the search for new antibacterial agents. We observed by NMR that actinonin, a natural inhibitor, induced drastic changes in the HSQC spectrum of E. coli PDF. We report here the complete NMR chemical shift assignments of PDF resonances bound to actinonin.
