Microbial peptidyl-prolyl cis/trans isomerases (ppIases): virulence factors and potential alternative drug targets
(Amer Soc Microbiology, 2014)
Initially discovered in the context of immunomodulation, peptidyl-prolyl cis/trans isomerases (PPIases) were soon identified as enzymes catalyzing the rate-limiting protein folding step at peptidyl bonds preceding proline ...
Novel therapeutic strategies for Clostridium difficile infections
(Taylor & Francis Ltd, 2016)
Introduction: In recent years, Clostridium difficile has become the primary cause of antibiotic-associated diarrhea and pseudomembranous colitis, resulting in long and complicated hospital stays that represent a serious ...
FKBPs in bacterial infections
(Elsevier Science Bv, 2015)
Background: FK506-binding proteins (FKBPs) contain a domain with peptidyl-prolyl-cis/trans-isomerase (PPlase) activity and bind the immunosuppressive drugs FK506 and rapamycin. FKBPs belong to the immunophilin family and ...
