    Rising antibiotic resistance urgently begs for novel targets and strategies for antibiotic discovery. Here, we report that over-activation of the periplasmic DegP protease, a member of the highly conserved HtrA family, can be a viable strategy for antibiotic development. We demonstrate that tripodal peptidyl compounds that mimic DegP-activating lipoprotein variants allosterically activate DegP and inhibit the growth of an Escherichia coli strain with a permeable outer membrane in a DegP-dependent fashion. Interestingly, these compounds inhibit bacterial growth at a temperature at which DegP is not essential for cell viability, mainly by over-proteolysis of newly synthesized proteins. Co-crystal structures show that the peptidyl arms of the compounds bind to the substrate-binding sites of DegP. Overall, our results represent an intriguing example of killing bacteria by activating a non-essential enzyme, and thus expand the scope of antibiotic targets beyond the traditional essential proteins or pathways.
