Tel Aviv University team finds bacteria-killing protein, could replace antibiotics

A group of Israeli researchers has succeeded in isolating a protein that kills bacteria, in what is a first step toward developing a substitute for antibiotics. The substance isolated by a Tel Aviv University team prevents bacteria from dividing, thus destroying them and combatting infections. “In the future, a new antibiotic can be produced from this protein,” according to the researchers who published their findings on Monday in the journal, “Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.”

The team is made up of Dr. Udi Qimron, doctoral students Ruth Kiro and Shahar Molshanski-Mor, and Dr. Ido Yosef, all of whom are with the Department of Clinical Microbiology and Immunology, Sackler School of Medicine, Tel Aviv University; and two American scientists, Dr. Sara L. Milam and Prof. Harold P. Erickson, from Duke University Medical Center.
