‘Silent’ microbe genes could hold new drugs

VANDERBILT (US) — The drastic measures bacteria take to become drug-resistant can also act as a powerful tool for discovering new drugs, report researchers. The findings should give a major boost to natural products drug discovery—the process of finding new drugs from compounds isolated from living organisms—by substantially increasing the number of novel compounds that scientists can extract from individual microorganisms. Bacteria have traditionally been the source of important drugs such as antibiotics and anticancer agents. Researchers looking for new bacterially synthesized drugs have ... Read More
