Bicyclomycin (1) is a novel antibiotic that targets rho transcription termination factor in Escherichia coli. We have demonstrated that retention of the C(5)-C(5a) exomethylene unit in 1 is not essential for inhibition. In a recent paper we proposed a working model for 1 and rho function and suggested that 1 binds in a cleft with the C(5)-C(5a) exomethylene unit directed toward the dimeric interface of two rho monomers. This report examines the bicyclomycin C(5)-C(5a) structural constraints…

Addition of Organochromium Reagents to Carbonyl Compounds
Organochromium compounds can be prepared by two methods: (1) transmetallation from the corresponding organolithium, -magnesium, or –zinc compounds with chromium(III) halides, and (2) reduction of
Découverte et déchiffrage de nouvelles voies de biosynthèse dépendant des synthases de cyclodipeptides : les clés d’une diversité accrue de dicétopipérazines potentiellement bioactives
Malgre l’interet et la diversite des proprietes pharmacologiques des 2,5-dicetopiperazines (DKP), les voies de biosynthese de ces molecules d’origine microbienne sont tres peu connues. L’objectif de
Beyond the approved: target sites and inhibitors of bacterial RNA polymerase from bacteria and fungi.
Novel findings concerning already known bacterial RNAP inhibitors, the characterization and development of new compounds isolated from bacteria and fungi, and providing brief insights into promising new synthetic compounds are focused on.
Mutations in the Rho Transcription Termination Factor That Affect RNA Tracking*
It is concluded that the secondary RNA-tracking site consists of amino acids whose putative orientation faces the central hole in Rho and in part reside in two clusters of positively charged residues located above and below the ATP hydrolysis domain.
