Unique mechanism of natural product with powerful antimicrobial action revealed

Scientists have uncovered the unique mechanism of a powerful natural product with wide-ranging antifungal, antibacterial, anti-malaria and anti-cancer effects. The work sheds light on the natural small molecule known as borrelidin. „Our study may help the rational design of compounds similar to borrelidin with a range of useful applications, particularly in cancer,“ said the leader of the study.
