Abstract:

Pharmacologically active natural products are generally classified as those useful for treating human diseases and disorders including hyperlipidemia, cancer, immunoregulatory disorders, inflammation, and neurological and metabolic diseases. This chapter reviews the discovery of pharmacologically active microbial metabolites, with an emphasis on recent developments, and considers the specific challenges involved in screening samples derived from microbial fermentations. It discusses high-throughput screening assays used for the discovery of pharmacologically active agents. It also gives specific examples of assays that have resulted in the discovery of new pharmacological agents of microbial origin. The chapter also reviews the selected pharmacologically active agents of microbial origin with utility or potential utility in the areas of immunosuppression, cancer, and cardiovascular and metabolic disease. The microbial products discussed in this chapter range from successful drugs to recently described lead compounds and provide ample testament to the ability of microbial secondary metabolism to provide compounds with real or potential therapeutic utility against a diverse and extensive range of pharmacological targets. The focus of many current microbial product screening operations is returning to antibiotic discovery. It is worth remembering that the discovery route of some very significant pharmacologically active agents of microbial origin has been indirect.
