Antibiotic Produced by the Microbiome Kills Bacteria by Disturbing Energy Metabolism
A research team from the Universities of Tübingen and Göttingen as well as from the German Center for Infection Research has investigated the mode of action of a new class of antibiotics that is highly effective against multidrug-resistant pathogens. The so-called fibupeptides impair the energy supply to the bacterial cell, consequently causing their death. The research findings have been published recently in the journal Angewandte Chemie.
