Bacterial natural products have been a rich source of bioactive compounds for drug development, and advances in DNA sequencing, informatics and molecular biology have opened new avenues for their discovery. Here, we describe the isolation of an aureolic acid biosynthetic gene cluster from a metagenome library derived from a New Zealand soil sample. Heterologous expression of this pathway in resulted in the production and isolation of two new aureolic acid compounds, one of which (metathramycin, ) possesses potent bioactivity against a human colon carcinoma cell line (HCT-116, IC = 14.

Objective: To investigate the presence of bacteria and fungi in bronchial aspirate (BA) samples from 43 mechanically ventilated patients with severe COVID-19 disease.Methods: Detection of SARS-CoV-2 was performed using Allplex 2019-nCoV assay kits. Isolation and characterisation of bacteria and fungi were carried out in BA specimens treated with 1X dithiothreitol 1% for 30 min at room temperature, using standard culture procedures. Read More

is a highly diverse genus containing over 200 species that can be problematic in both industrial and medical settings. This is mainly attributed to sp. being intrinsically resistant to an array of antimicrobial compounds, hence alternative treatment options are needed. Read More
