Caption: Teixobactin destroying bacterium. Computer illustration of a molecule of the antibiotic teixobactin (yellow) causing a bacterium (round) to rupture during division. Teixobactin is a new class of antibiotic that works against gram-positive bacteria by preventing them from forming cell walls. This means the bacteria is unable to form a viable cell wall when dividing, causing it to burst.
