Alkaloid Puzzle Resolved
Chemists have yet to learn all of the molecule-making tactics of the family of fungi that produces penicillin. And as a research report shows, collaborative efforts to further unravel fungal biosynthetic pathways can help scientists find new antibacterial and antitumor agents (Nature 2014, DOI: 10.1038/nature13273). Richmond Sarpong and his group at the University of California, Berkeley, had run into a fungal alkaloid . . .
