Isoquinolines (IQs) are natural substances with an antibiotic potential we aim to optimize. Specifically, IQ-238 is a synthetic analog of the novel-type N,C-coupled naphthylisoquinoline (NIQ) alkaloid ancisheynine. Recently, we developed and tested other IQs such as IQ-143. By utilizing genome-wide gene expression data, metabolic network modelling and(More)
PURPOSE The mortality rate of patients with Staphylococcus aureus infections is alarming and urgently demands new strategies to attenuate the course of these infections or to detect them at earlier stages. EXPERIMENTAL DESIGN To study the adaptive immune response to S. aureus antigens in healthy human volunteers, a protein microarray containing 44 S.(More)
Staphylococcus aureus is a major bacterial pathogen, which causes severe blood and tissue infections that frequently emerge by autoinfection with asymptomatically carried nose and skin populations. However, recent studies report that bloodstream isolates differ systematically from those found in the nose and skin, exhibiting reduced toxicity toward(More)
The pathogen Staphylococcus aureus causes a broad range of severe diseases and is feared for its ability to rapidly develop resistance to antibiotic substances. The increasing number of highly resistant S. aureus infections has accelerated the search for alternative treatment options to close the widening gap in anti-S. aureus therapy. This study analyses(More)
Hsp90 inhibitors can enhance the tumour sensitivity to ionising radiation (IR). However, Hsp90 inhibition leads to the up-regulation of anti-apoptotic Hsp90 and Hsp70, which might diminish the radiosensitizing effects of the inhibitors. Therefore, inhibition of the up-regulation of Hsp90 by siRNA might be a promising strategy to enhance drug-mediated(More)
