Abstract
Different strategies are currently followed to eradicate bacteria, involving most of them the disruption of the bacterial membrane that ultimately cause the cell death. On the other hand, bacteria regulate their membrane lipid composition and the degree of unsaturation of their hydrocarbon chains as a response to environmental signals.1 The anticipation of the adapted membrane properties is of high relevance to increase the targetability of novel antimicrobial agents. The current work engineers ...
