Ryan and Andersen labs make cover of Chemistry & Biology

A paper entitled “N-Carbamoylation of 2,4-Diaminobutyrate Reroutes the Outcome in Padanamide Biosynthesis” has been highlighted and featured as the front cover artwork in the August issue of Chemistry & Biology.  The article, authored by Yi-Ling Du, Doralyn S. Dalisay, Raymond J. Andersen, and Katherine S. Ryan, interrogates the biosynthetic route to the highly modified linear peptides padanamides A and B. These molecules have several chemical features that are unprecedented in the natural products literature. The full paper on this topic can be found here.
