The Discovery of 2-Aminobenzimidazoles That Sensitize Mycobacterium smegmatis and M. tuberculosis to beta-Lactam Antibiotics in a Pattern Distinct from beta-Lactamase Inhibitors


By: T. Nguyen n, M. Blackledge*, E. Lindsey n, B. Minrovic n, D. Ackart*, A. Jeon*, A. Obregon-Henao*, R. Melander n, R. Basaraba*, C. Melander

author keywords: aminobenzimidazoles; antibiotic resistance; medicinal chemistry; tuberculosis
MeSH headings : Anti-Bacterial Agents / chemical synthesis; Anti-Bacterial Agents / chemistry; Anti-Bacterial Agents / pharmacology; Benzimidazoles / chemistry; Benzimidazoles / pharmacology; Drug Discovery; Lactams / chemical synthesis; Lactams / chemistry; Lactams / pharmacology; Molecular Structure; Mycobacterium smegmatis / drug effects; Mycobacterium smegmatis / enzymology; Mycobacterium tuberculosis / drug effects; Mycobacterium tuberculosis / enzymology; beta-Lactamase Inhibitors / chemical synthesis; beta-Lactamase Inhibitors / chemistry; beta-Lactamase Inhibitors / pharmacology; beta-Lactamases / metabolism
TL;DR: A library of 2-aminobenzimidazole derivatives was screened for the ability to suppress β-lactam resistance in Mycobacterium smegmatis and preliminary mechanistic studies revealed that the lead compounds act through a mechanism distinct from that of traditional β- lactamase inhibitors.
