  • Dual Escherichia coli DNA gyrase A and B inhibitors with antibacterial activity [Elektronski vir]
    Fois, Benedetta ...
    The emergence of multidrug resistant bacteria is a global health threat necessitating the discovery of new antibacterials and novel strategies for fighting bacterial infections. We report ... first-in-class DNA gyrase B (GyrB) inhibitor/ciprofloxacin hybrids that display antibacterial activity against Escherichia coli. Whereas DNA gyrase ATPase inhibition experiments, DNA gyrase supercoiling assays, and in-vitro antibacterial assays suggest binding of the hybrids to the E. coli GyrA and GyrB subunits, an interaction with the GyrA fluoroquinolone-binding site seems to be solely responsible for their antibacterial activity. Our results provide a foundation for a new concept of facilitating entry of nonpermeating GyrB inhibitors into bacteria by conjugation with ciprofloxacin, a highly permeable GyrA inhibitor. A hybrid molecule containing GyrA and GyrB inhibitor parts entering the bacterial cell would then elicit a strong antibacterial effect by inhibition of both the GyrA and GyrB subunits of DNA gyrase and potentially slow bacterial resistance development.
