In Vivo Evidence for a Prodrug Activation Mechanism during Colibactin Maturation

Bian, X, Fu, J, Plaza, A, Herrmann, J, Pistorius, D, Stewart, AF, Zhang, Y and Muller, R (2013) In Vivo Evidence for a Prodrug Activation Mechanism during Colibactin Maturation. ChemBioChem, 14 (10). pp. 1194-1197. ISSN 14394227


Releasing the cytopath: We have identified an N-myristoyl-D-asparagine (1) as the free N-terminal prodrug scaffold in cytopathogenic Escherichia coli strains expressing the colibactin gene cluster. Colibactin is released in vivo upon cleavage of precolibactin. We provide for the first time in vivo evidence of the prodrug-like release mechanism of colibactin. 2013 WILEY-VCH Verlag GmbH & Co.
