Abstract The rise in multidrug resistant (MDR) cases of tuberculosis (TB) has led to the need for the development of TB drugs with different mechanisms of action. The genome sequence of Mycobacterium tuberculosis ( Mtb ) revealed twenty different genes coding for cytochrome P450s. CYP121A1 catalyzes a C C crosslinking reaction of dicyclotyrosine (cYY) producing mycocyclosin and current research suggests that either mycocyclosin is essential or the overproduction of cYY is toxic to Mtb . A series of 1,4-dibenzyl-2-imidazol-1-yl-methylpiperazine derivatives were designed and synthesised as cYY mimics. The derivatives substituted in the 4-position of the phenyl rings with halides or alkyl group showed promising antimycobacterial activity (MIC 6.25 μg/mL), with the more lipophilic branched alkyl derivatives displaying optimal binding affinity with CYP121A1 ( i Pr K D  = 1.6 μM; t Bu K D  = 1.2 μM). Computational studies revealed two possible binding modes within the CYP121A1 active site both of which would effectively block cYY from binding.

Summary Tuberculosis is the number one cause of death from infectious disease globally and drug-resistant forms of the disease are a major risk to global health security. On the occasion of World Tuberculosis Day (March 24, 2018), we provide an up-to-date review of the status of the tuberculosis epidemic, recommended diagnostics, drug treatments and vaccines, progress in delivery of care and prevention, progress in research and development, and actions needed to accelerate progress. This Review ...

Three series of azole piperazine derivatives that mimic dicyclotyrosine (cYY), the natural substrate of the essential Mycobacterium tuberculosis cytochrome P450 CYP121A1, were prepared and evaluated for binding affinity and inhibitory activity (MIC) against M. tuberculosis. Series A replaces one phenol group of cYY with a C3-imidazole moiety, series B includes a keto group on the hydrocarbon chain preceding the series A imidazole, whilst series C explores replacing the keto group of the piperido...

Three series of biarylpyrazole imidazole and triazoles are described, which vary in the linker between the biaryl pyrazole and imidazole/triazole group. The imidazole and triazole series with the short −CH2– linker displayed promising antimycobacterial activity, with the imidazole–CH2– series (7) showing low MIC values (6.25–25 μg/mL), which was also influenced by lipophilicity. Extending the linker to −C(O)NH(CH2)2– resulted in a loss of antimycobacterial activity. The binding affinity of the c...

Antimicrobial resistance is a major global concern. Tuberculosis (TB) strains resistant to rifampicin and other TB medicines challenge patient survival and public health. The World Health Organization (WHO) has published treatment guidelines for drug-resistant TB since 1997 and last updated them in 2016 based on reviews of aggregated and individual patient data from published and unpublished studies. An international expert panel formulated recommendations following the GRADE approach. The new W...

The unusual activity differences of carbon linked versus oxygen linked 2-substituted piperazines as α7 nicotinic acetylcholine receptor agonists led to a conformational study of several examples. The conformational preferences of which are absent from the literature. We report the first study and explanation of the conformational preference of 2-substiturted piperazines and show an example of how this preference controls binding in a pharmaceutically relevant case. In all cases the axial conform...

Introduction Consensus on the best treatment regimens for patients with isoniazid-resistant TB is limited; global treatment guidelines differ. We undertook a systematic review and meta-analysis using mixed-treatment comparisons methodology to provide an up-to-date summary of randomised controlled trials (RCTs) and relative regimen efficacy. Methods Ovid MEDLINE, the Web of Science and EMBASE were mined using search terms for TB, drug therapy and RCTs. Extracted data were inputted into fixed-effe...

Two new series of hydrogen bonding liquid crystal dimers were prepared and their self-assemble behavior and structure–property relationships were studied through intermolecular hydrogen bond formation. The first series of symmetric liquid crystal dimers have two terminal alkoxy chains and the second have four terminal alkoxy chains. Their structures were elucidated using spectroscopic techniques, elemental analysis, and powdered X-ray diffraction. The mesophases and their corresponding transitio...

A series of newer substituted-imidazolidine derivatives 3ak were synthesized and assayed in vivo to investigate their anti-inflammatory, analgesic and antiulcer activity. The results of biological evaluation revealed that the three compounds, 4- (1,3-bis(4-hydroxy-3-methoxybenzyl)-2-imidazolidinyl)phenyldiethylamine (3g), 4-(1,3-bis(3-Ethoxy-4-hydroxybenzyl)-2-imida- zolidinyl)phenyldiethylamine (3h) and 4-(1,3-bis(benzo(d)(1,3)dioxol-5-ylmethyl)-4-methylimidazolidin-2-yl)-N,N-diethyl- benzenami...

Mycobacterial persisters, the survivors from antibiotic exposure, necessitate the lengthy treatment of tuberculosis (TB) and pose a significant challenge for our control of the disease. We suggest that persisters in TB are heterogeneous in nature and comprise various proportions of the population depending on the circumstances; the mechanisms of their formation are complex and may be related to those required for persistence in chronic infection. Results from recent studies implicate multiple pa...
