Synthetic lethality between poly(ADP-ribose) polymerase (PARP) inhibition and BRCA deficiency is exploited to treat breast and ovarian tumors. However, resistance to PARP inhibitors (PARPis) is common. To identify potential resistance mechanisms, we performed a genome-wide RNAi screen in BRCA2-deficient mouse

The ubiquitous sulfur metabolite ergothioneine is biosynthesized by oxidative attachment of a sulfur atom to the imidazole ring of Nα-trimethylhistidine. Most actinobacteria, including Mycobacterium tuberculosis, use γ-glutamyl cysteine as a sulfur donor. In subsequent steps the carbon scaffold of γ-glutamyl
