Architecture and Conservation of the Bacterial DNA Replication Machinery, an Underexploited Drug Target

By Andrew Robinson, Rebecca J Causer and Nicholas E Dixon


New antibiotics with novel modes of action are required to combat the growing threat posed by multi-drug resistant bacteria. Over the last decade, genome sequencing and other high-throughput techniques have provided tremendous insight into the molecular processes underlying cellular functions in a wide range of bacterial species. We can now use these data to assess the degree of conservation of certain aspects of bacterial physiology, to help choose the best cellular targets for development of new broad-spectrum antibacterials
