Allosteric Inhibitors of the Main Protease of SARS-CoV-2
In this report, the SARS-CoV-2 3CLpro was expressed and purified. By using a FRET-based enzymatic assay, the researchers have screened a library consisting of more than 300 different niclosamide derivatives and identified three molecules JMX0286, JMX0301, and JMX0941 as potent allosteric inhibitors against SARS-CoV-2 3CLpro, with IC50 values like that...

Calcimycin as Antifungals
A new antifungal treatment is necessary, as pathogens evolve and develop immunity to current methods. Here, the inventors present calcimycin (CMN) as a novel treatment of cryptococcosis caused by Cryptococcus neoformans (Cne) and likely Cryptococcus gattii (Cga). CMN prevents the protein from continuing to splice. While the current treatment methods...
