  • Pyridylpiperazine efflux pump inhibitor boosts in vivo antibiotic efficacy against K. pneumoniae
    by Anais Vieira Da Cruz on January 4, 2024 at 11:00 am

    Antimicrobial resistance is a global problem, rendering conventional treatments less effective and requiring innovative strategies to combat this growing threat. The tripartite AcrAB-TolC efflux pump is the dominant constitutive system by which Enterobacterales like Escherichia coli and Klebsiella pneumoniae extrude antibiotics. Here, we describe the medicinal chemistry development and drug-like properties of BDM91288, a pyridylpiperazine-based AcrB efflux pump inhibitor. In vitro evaluation of...

  • In vitro characterization of the phage lysis protein MS2-L
    by Julija Mezhyrova on December 4, 2023 at 11:00 am

    Background: The peptide MS2-L represents toxins of the ssRNA Leviviridae phage family and consists of a predicted N-terminal soluble domain followed by a transmembrane domain. MS2-L mediates bacterial cell lysis through the formation of large lesions in the cell envelope, but further details of this mechanism as a prerequisite for applied bioengineering studies are lacking. The chaperone DnaJ is proposed to modulate MS2-L activity, whereas other cellular targets of MS2-L are unknown. Methods:...

  • Cryo-electron tomography reveals the binding and release states of the major adhesion complex from Mycoplasma genitalium
    by Lasse Sprankel on November 8, 2023 at 11:00 am

    The nap particle is an immunogenic surface adhesion complex from Mycoplasma genitalium. It is essential for motility and responsible for binding sialylated oligosaccharides on the surface of the host cell. The nap particle is composed of two P140-P110 heterodimers, the structure of which was recently solved. However, the interpretation of the mechanism by which the mycoplasma cells orchestrate adhesion remained challenging. Here, we provide cryo-electron tomography structures at ~11 Å...

  • Essential protein P116 extracts cholesterol and other indispensable lipids for Mycoplasmas
    by Lasse Sprankel on February 14, 2023 at 11:00 am

    Mycoplasma pneumoniae, responsible for approximately 30% of community-acquired human pneumonia, needs to extract lipids from the host environment for survival and proliferation. Here, we report a comprehensive structural and functional analysis of the previously uncharacterized protein P116 (MPN_213). Single-particle cryo-electron microscopy of P116 reveals a homodimer presenting a previously unseen fold, forming a huge hydrophobic cavity, which is fully accessible to solvent. Lipidomics...

  • ArtiaX: An electron tomography toolbox for the interactive handling of sub-tomograms in UCSF ChimeraX
    by Utz H Ermel on October 17, 2022 at 10:00 am

    Cryo-electron tomography analysis involves the selection of macromolecular complexes to be used for subsequent sub-tomogram averaging and structure determination. Here, we describe a plugin developed for UCSF ChimeraX that allows for the display, selection, and editing of particles within tomograms. Positions and orientations of selected particles can be manually set, modified and inspected in real time, both on screen and in virtual reality, and exported to various file formats. The plugin...
