Ammosamides Unveil Novel Biosynthetic Machinery

Dominic A. Colosimo, John B. MacMillan

Research output: Contribution to journalShort survey

Abstract

In this issue of Cell Chemical Biology, Jordan and Moore (2016) present a thorough biosynthetic analysis of ammosamides, a bacterial natural product. The work highlights the previously unknown overlap between two natural products families: pyrroloquinoline alkaloids and ribosomally synthesized posttranslationally modified peptides (RiPPs).
