Lipopeptides (LPs) are a structurally diverse class of amphipathic natural products that were in the past mainly known for their surfactant properties. However, the recent discovery of their antimicrobial and cytotoxic bioactivities have fueled and renewed the interest in this compound class. Propelled by the antimicrobial potential of this compound class, in this study a range of six underinvestigated LPs from Pseudomonads were examined with respect to their antibiotic activities towards… CONTINUE READING
