 Project objective

We live in an era where once miracle drugs – antibiotics, cease to be efficient. The rise of antibiotic resistance is an immediate major global issue. There are several layers causing the problem – misuse, overuse, lack of proper guidelines etc. The only long-term efficient solutions are – pushing more antibiotics and vaccines into the discovery pipeline. More than 70% of the naturally produced antibiotics used today come from non-pathogenic bacteria from the Streptomyces genus. These bountiful bacteria still have a lot to give, as only one-third of their secondary metabolite pathways are characterized. The rest of their potential stays locked away, i.e., inaccessible with the currently available approaches/tools. In STREPUNLOCKED project, we suggest a study of an up-and-coming pathway involved in the regulation of antibiotic production/resistance – adenosine diphosphate (ADP)-ribosylation. In order to achieve these aims, we will use a multidisciplinary approach that combines several latest mass spectrometry techniques and analyses, genetic approaches, molecular modelling and bioinformatics’ tools to characterize the novel ADP-ribosylation pathways, their signalling context, and their role in antibiotic production. Using the deep dive strategy in order to understand this pathway in Streptomyces would have multiple benefits: opening the doors to the new tool for manipulating the Streptomyces metabolism, lead the way to new lines of basic research, discovery and practical applications – such as new antibiotic compounds.

Are you the coordinator (or a participant) of this project? Plaese send me more information about the "STREPUNLOCKED" 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 (fabio@fabiodisconzi.com) 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.
