Due to their large therapeutic window and broad-spectrum antiviral, immunomodulatory, anti-inflammatory, and antioxidant activities, natural products derived from plants or microbes and natural product-inspired small molecules have attracted considerable attention as potential agents to combat SARS-CoV-2, the causative agent of COVID-19.
Bacteria need some metabolites to survive. By disrupting the synthesis of these essential metabolites certain antibiotics inhibit bacterial growth.
By impairing the ability of the bacterial cell to produce ATP or other energy equivalents certain antibiotics inhibit bacterial growth. How do theses antibiotics target the energy metabolism?
There are different types of antibiotics targeting the ribosome, mRNA, tRNA or factors associated with translation. But how do these antibiotics inhibit protein synthesis?
There are several types of antibiotics inhibiting RNA or DNA replication and thereby prevent bacterial growth. But how do these antibiotics work?
As one of the most highly exploited medication classes, antibiotics address a broad range of bacterial infections by either killing, lysing, or stalling the growth of microbes. But how do these compounds work?
Obesity represents one of the greatest global health problems. With the addition of the diabetes drug semaglutide, a pharmacological therapy option could now be used to effectively reduce weight.
Antibiotics address a broad range of bacterial infections by either killing, lysing, or stalling the growth of microbes. Learn more about how antibiotics affect the plasma membrane in this article.
Biomol offers more than 625.000 products for life science research. Many of these products are used to enable new discoveries and are featured in a wide range of peer-reviewed publications. But which are the most highly cited products of all time?
Certain antibiotics interfere with various aspects of the synthesis of the peptidoglycan cell wall. Take a look at the underlying molecular mechanisms!
The Cannabis sativa plant has seen a tremendous amount of notoriety over the last few years due to an increasing support of legalization.
