Anti-vibriosis bioactive molecules from Arctic Penicillium sp. Z2230
New Content Item (1)

Vibrio species is a class of Gram-negative aquatic bacteria that causes vibriosis in aquaculture, which have resulted in big economic losses. Utilization of antibiotics against vibriosis has brought concerns on antibiotic resistance, and it is essential to explore potential antibiotic alternatives. In this study, seven compounds  were isolated from the Arctic endophytic fungus Penicillium sp. Z2230, among which three compounds showed anti-Vibrio activity. The structures of the seven compounds were comprehensively elucidated, and the antibacterial mechanism of the three compounds was explored by molecular docking. The results suggested that the anti-Vibrio activity could come from inhibition of the bacterial peptide deformylase (PDF).

Aims and scope

Bioresources and Bioprocessing (BIOB) is a peer-reviewed open access journal published under the brand SpringerOpen. BIOB aims at providing an international academic platform for exchanging views on and promoting research to support bioresource development, processing and utilization in a sustainable manner. As an application-oriented research journal, BIOB covers not only the application and management of bioresource technology but also the design and development of bioprocesses that will lead to new and sustainable production processes.

BIOB publishes original and review articles on most topics relating to bioresource and bioprocess engineering, including:

  • Biochemical and microbiological engineering
  • Biocatalysis and biotransformation
  • Biosynthesis and metabolic engineering
  • Bioprocess and biosystems engineering
  • Bioenergy and biorefinery
  • Cell culture and biomedical engineering
  • Food, agricultural and marine biotechnology
  • Bioseparation and biopurification engineering
  • Bioremediation and environmental biotechnology
