Scientists have for the first time determined the molecular structure of a new antibiotic which could hold the key to tackling drug resistant bacteria. The team at the University of Lincoln, UK, previously produced two synthetic derivatives of teixobactin – which has been hailed as a ‘game-changer’ in the fight against antimicrobial resistance – and the researchers have now become the first in the world to document the molecular make-up of the antibiotic.
