Aspergillus fumigatus is a species of fungus that causes a range of diseases in human beings, especially in those with an immunodeficiency. It is one of the most prevalent of the airborne fungi. Now, a study reports that a compound can prevent the growth of Aspergillus fumigatus by targeting a specific enzyme that helps the fungus survive iron-deficient conditions, such as the human body. The fungal enzyme, termed Flavin-Dependent Monooxygenase Siderophore A (SidA), plays a vital role in the production of siderophores, molecules that obtain iron from human proteins.
