Exploiting the Sensitivity of Nutrient Transporter Deletion Strains in Discovery of Natural Product Antimetabolites

In their recent publication, IIDR members from Dr. Eric Brown’s lab, in collaboration with Dr. Gerry Wright‘s lab, screen actinomycete-derived extracts against nutrient transporter deletion strains to design a target-specific approach that increases the detection of antimetabolites from natural sources. Read more about how this unique solution can uncover the full potential of naturally derived antibiotics.
