The big streptogramin story, complete with 250-pg SI.

With an incredible, multidisciplinary team from UCSF and Schrodinger, we have been able to overcome streptogramin resistance caused by virginiamycin acetyltransferase! We have posted the results on ChemRXiv (, making this our first pre-print (by only a few hours! see next post…)

We are very proud of this story. It features >60 structurally complex analogs, >8 cryo-EM structures, and hundreds of MICs. And a 250+-page Supporting Information. Congrats to Qi, Jenna, and the whole team!!
