Sorry, no etymologies found.
Platensimycin and platencin are inhibitors of FabF and FabF
While platensimycin failed to inhibit mycobacterial Mt-FabH, it would be interesting to examine whether platencin is active against Mt-FabH.
Both platensimycin and platencin are structurally similar.
Platensimycin contains a pentacyclic motif with a cyclic ether ring, whereas platencin contains a unique tetracyclic motif without the ether ring
