Structure and Biosynthesis of Isatropolones, Bioactive Amine-Scavenging Fluorescent Natural Products from Streptomyces Gö66.
The natural products isatropolone A-C (1-3) were reisolated from Streptomyces Gö66, with 1 and 3 showing potent activity against Leishmania donovani. They contain a rare tropolone ring derived from aExpand

Biosynthesis of the Antibiotic Nematophin and Its Elongated Derivatives in Entomopathogenic Bacteria.
Nematophin, a known antibiotic natural product against Staphylococcus aureus for almost 20 years, is produced by all strains of Xenorhabdus nematophila. Despite its simple structure, its biosynthesisExpand

Structure-based redesign of docking domain interactions modulates the product spectrum of a rhabdopeptide-synthesizing NRPS
Several peptides in clinical use are derived from non-ribosomal peptide synthetases (NRPS). In these systems multiple NRPS subunits interact with each other in a specific linear order mediated byExpand

Small RNA directs symbiosis, virulence, and natural products biosynthesis in entomopathogenic bacteria
Rapid modulation of gene expression is a key feature for the success of bacteria, particularly for those that rapidly have to adapt to different niches. The lifecycles of Photorhabdus and XenorhabdusExpand
