Yersinia tyrosine phosphatase


There is an urgent need to find new drugs that are effective against antibiotic resistant forms of diseases such as plague, smallpox and anthrax. In the middle ages, plague alone exterminated over one-third of the European population. Yersinia tyrosine phosphatase (1LYV) is a protein which plays a critical role in the development of the disease is known, and a small molecule which inhibits the action of this protein has the potential to be a new class of bio-terrorism antidote.
