Compound that stops cells from making protein factories could lead to new antifungal drugs

from Phys.Org

Tiny, abundant biological factories, known as ribosomes, produce the cell's most fundamental building material: protein. If ribosomes don't work, cells can't divide — and this can be an advantage for scientists seeking to develop drugs that target invading organisms, such as pathogenic fungi. New research has identified a compound that interferes with the process by which ribosomes themselves are assembled. more
