Title of Contract, Award, or Gift: A Protein Synthesis System from Pseudomonas aeruginosa for Screening for Antibact

Name of Granting or Contracting Agency/Entity: U.S. Department of Health & Human Services/NIH/NIGMS

Program Title: Biomedical Research and Research Training


The goal of this proposal is to develop a protein synthesis system from Pseudomonas aeruginosa that will permit us to screen biochemically for compounds that will specifically inhibit protein synthesis in P. aeruginosa. Next, this system can be used to identify the targets for drug candidates discovered using whole cell screens. Finally, development of this system will allow us, for the first time, to critically inspect each component of P. aeruginosa protein synthesis system separately as well as the system in its entirety.
