The next Manchester Infection Seminar will be by Dr Fraser Scott, University of Strathclyde, who will be presenting a talk titled “Strathclyde Minor Groove Binders: a novel class of broad-spectrum anti-infective agents”. The talk will be Wednesday the 14th February 11:00. The seminar will be online only via Zoom (https://zoom.us/j/99620144890).
Abstract: Strathclyde Minor Groove Binders (S-MGBs): a new class of anti-infective agent S-MGBs are a class of anti-infective compound that exert their biological effects through binding to the minor groove of DNA. Consequently, this compound class has been demonstrated to have significant activity against bacterial, fungal, viral and parasitic pathogens. This presentation will describe what is currently known about the mechanism of action and selectivity of S-MGBs, using MGB-BP-3, a compound currently going through clinical trials, as a case study.
