The increasing prevalence of drug-resistant microorganisms worldwide and the shortage of novel antimicrobial chemotherapeutics in the pipeline places our capacity to treat infectious diseases under serious threat. Antimicrobial chemotherapies with novel modes of action are desperately needed. However, the development of such therapies is a formidable task associated with a high failure rate. This has been partly attributed to the limited diversity of high-throughput screening libraries and difficulties converting potent inhibitors of targets into cell-active leads. We intend to use a novel, unified and efficient approach to target, in multiple pathogenic microorganisms, the conserved biosynthesis pathway of Coenzyme A (CoA), an essential enzyme cofactor. Using powerful “fragment-based” approaches, pioneered in Cambridge, we have developed a series of highly potent inhibitors of the most vulnerable enzyme target in the bacterial CoA biosynthesis pathway of Mycobacterium tuberculosis (Mtb), Mtb CoaBC, a target which has recently been validated in experiments using conditional knockdown mutants in CoA pathway genes. We will focus our initial efforts in confirming that tuberculosis (TB) can be combatted with small molecule CoaBC inhibitors. In addition, we propose to assess the cross-species activity of these inhibitors on a panel of other pathogenic microorganisms, leveraging this research and potentially generating leads for antibiotics against these other pathogens.
Are you the coordinator (or a participant) of this project? Plaese send me more information about the "MTB COABC" project.
For instance: the website url (it has not provided by EU-opendata yet), the logo, a more detailed description of the project (in plain text as a rtf file or a word file), some pictures (as picture files, not embedded into any word file), twitter account, linkedin page, etc.
Send me an email (firstname.lastname@example.org) and I put them in your project's page as son as possible.
Thanks. And then put a link of this page into your project's website.
