Journal Article
Dekan, Z., Sianati, S., Yousuf, A., Sutcliffe, K. J., Gillis, A., Mallet, C., …Christie, M. J. (2019). A tetrapeptide class of biased analgesics from an Australian fungus targets the μ-opioid receptor. Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, https://doi.org/10.1073/pnas.1908662116

An Australian estuarine isolate ofPenicilliumsp. MST-MF667 yielded3 tetrapeptides named the bilaids with an unusual alternating LDLDchirality. Given their resemblance to known short peptide opioidagonists, we elucidated that they were weak (Kilow mic...
