Br J Dermatol 2020 Jun 28. Epub 2020 Jun 28.

Department of Dermatology, Kangdong Sacred Heart Hospital, Hallym University College of Medicine, Seoul, Korea.

Dear Editor, Scabies infestation is increasingly a public health concern, even in high-income countries. The disability-adjusted life-years (DALYs) globally was estimated to be 71·11 (95% CI 39·77-116·03) per 100,000 people based on the results of a cross-sectional analysis from the Global Burden of Disease Study 2015 . The gold standard for scabies diagnosis is microscopic examination of skin scrapings in mineral oil, but the sensitivity of this technique is low ; as a result, scabies infestation cannot be ruled out even when this test is negative.

Regulation of Bottromycin Biosynthesis Involves an Internal Transcriptional Start Site and a Cluster-Situated Modulator.

Front Microbiol 2020 26;11:495. Epub 2020 Mar 26.

Department of Molecular Microbiology, John Innes Centre, Norwich, United Kingdom.

Bottromycin is a ribosomally synthesized and post-translationally modified peptide (RiPP) produced by several streptomycetes, including the plant pathogen . There is significant interest in this molecule as it possesses strong antibacterial activity against clinically relevant multidrug resistant pathogens and is structurally distinct from all other antibiotics. However, studies into its efficacy are hampered by poor yields. Read More
