Supercomputer simulations help develop new approach to fight antibiotic resistance

Researchers at the University of Oklahoma and Oak Ridge National Laboratory worked together to discover a new class of drugs that could combat antibiotic resistance.

CMB group members at UT and ORNL worked with scientists at the University of Oklahoma and St. Louis University to discover molecules that combat antibiotic resistance. The team combined supercomputer simulations on Titan with laboratory experiments to discover molecules that disrupt the structure and function of the AcrAB-TolC multidrug efflux pump in E. coli, restoring the ability of existing antibiotics to kill the bacteria.
