- ... The biosynthesis of ribosomally synthesized and post-translationally modified peptide (RiPP) natural products typically involves a precursor peptide which contains a leader peptide that is important for the modification process, and that is removed in the final step by a protease. Genome mining efforts for new RiPPs are often hampered by the lack of a general method to remove the leader peptides. ...
