2014_18/2014Metallo-β-lactamases and Their Biomimetic Complexes (Eur. J. Inorg. Chem. 18/2014)

The cover picture shows a Petri dish with E. coli bacteria colonies engineered to grow on media treated with ampicillin. The protein structures depict metallo-β-lactamase NDM-1 bound to the inhibitor captopril and hydrolyzed ampizillin. The use and overuse of antibiotics such as penicillin (top right) is a major contributor to antibiotic resistance. Details are presented in the Microreview by L. R. Gahan et al. on p. 2869 ff.
