An Antimicrobial Bicyclic Peptide from Chemical Space Against Multidrug Resistant Gram-Negative Bacteria

Tags: Publications

The paper An Antimicrobial Bicyclic Peptide from Chemical Space Against Multidrug Resistant Gram-Negative Bacteria has been accepted for publication by Chemical Communications.

We used the concept of chemical space to explore a virtual library of bicyclic peptides formed by double thioether cyclization of a precursor linear peptide, and identified an antimicrobial bicyclic peptide (AMBP) with remarkable activity against several MDR strains of Acinetobacter baumannii and Pseudomonas aeruginosa.
