    Himastatin and bacteria


    A model of the molecule himastatin overlaid on an image of Bacillus subtilis bacteria. Scientists first isolated himastatin from the bacterium Streptomyces himastatinicus, and the molecule shows antibiotic activity. The researchers who created this image developed a new, more concise way to synthesize himastatin so it can be studied more easily. They also tested the effects of himastatin and derivatives of the molecule on B. subtilis.

    More information about the research that produced this image can be found in the Science paper “Total synthesis of himastatin” by D’Angelo et al.

    Related to image 6848 and video 6851.
    Public NoteA ball-and-stick model of an oblong molecule overlaid on an image of long, narrow, brightly colored bacteria.
