New model for antibacterial mechanism

Biologists have discovered an aberrant protein that’s deadly to bacteria. This erroneously built protein mimics the action of aminoglycosides, a class of antibiotics. The newly discovered protein could serve as a model to help scientists unravel details of those drugs’ lethal effects on bacteria — and potentially point the way to future antibiotics.
