Using a protein complex found in breast milk, researchers force drug-resistant 'superbugs' including MRSA to respond to antibiotics again A protein complex found in human breast milk can help reverse the antibiotic resistance of bacterial species that cause dangerous pneumonia and staph infections, according to new University at Buffalo research. In petri dish and animal experiments, the protein complex – called Human Alpha-lactalbumin Made Lethal to Tumor Cells (HAMLET) –...

Staphylococcus aureus is a facultative anaerobic gram-positive coccus, and is the most common cause of staph infections. It is commonly part of the skin flora found in the nose and on skin. Around 20% of the human population is long-term carriers. It gets its golden color due to its carotenoid pigment staphyloxanthin. The pigment acts as a virulence factor with an antioxidant action that allows the microbe to evade death by reactive oxygen species used by the host immune system. Staphylococci...
