  • PubMed Abstract: 

    Burkholderia pseudomallei infection causes melioidosis, which is often fatal if untreated. There is a need to develop new and more effective treatments for melioidosis. This study reports apo and cofactor-bound crystal structures of the potential drug target betaine aldehyde dehydrogenase (BADH) from B. pseudomallei. A structural comparison identified similarities to BADH from Pseudomonas aeruginosa which is inhibited by the drug disulfiram. This preliminary analysis could facilitate drug-repurposing studies for B. pseudomallei.
