To study the role of ecdysone and the ecdysone inducible gene in the regulation of molting and development in crustaceans, we have cloned a cDNA encoding an orphan nuclear receptor family member from the eyestalk of the shrimp Metapenaeus ensis. The size of the cDNA is 4.3 kb with the longest open reading frame (ORF) encoding a protein of 545 amino acid(More)
The bacterial cell division protein FtsZ is one of many potential targets for the development of novel antibiotics. Recently, zantrin Z3 was shown to be a cross-species inhibitor of FtsZ; however, its specific interactions with the protein are still unknown. Herein we report the synthesis of analogues that contain a more tractable core structure and an(More)
