Title Mining bacterial genomes to reveal secret synergy
Author(s) Alanjary, Mohammad; Medema, Marnix H.
Source Journal of Biological Chemistry 293 (2018)52. - ISSN 0021-9258 - p. 19996 - 19997.
Department(s) Bioinformatics
Publication type Refereed Article in a scientific journal
Publication year 2018

The medical treatment of infectious diseases often requires combination therapies that blend two molecules to enhance drug efficacy. Nature does the same. In a new article, Mrak et al. identify and functionally characterize natural products from Streptomyces rapamycinicus that show synergistic antifungal activity with the well-known immunosuppressant metabolite rapamycin, produced by the same strain. The genomic co-association of the two biosynthetic gene clusters paves the way toward new strategies to discover synergistic pairs of antibiotics through large-scale genome mining.
