Abstract:This work further extends initial studies into using FTMS to examine NRP/PK synthetases and provides the most detailed insights into pyochelin, yersiniabactin and FK520 biosynthesis achieved to date. This study also represents the first observation of multiple covalently modified active site peptides in parallel using robust digestion protocols. It is hoped that further refinement of this mass spectrometry-based platform will bolster NRP/PK reengineering efforts towards the design of "unnatural" natural products that combat modern antibiotic-resistant pathogens.
