Abstract: A series of novel N-benzylidenesulfonohydrazide compounds were designedand synthesized as inhibitors of UDP-N-acetylmuramic acid:L-alanine ligase (MurC) andUDP-N-acetylmuramoyl-L-alanine:D-glutamate ligase (MurD) from E. coli, involved inthe biosynthesis of bacterial cell-walls. Some compounds possessed inhibitory activityagainst both enzymes with IC50 values as low as 30 μM. In addition, a new, one-potsynthesis of amidobenzaldehydes is reported.
Keywords: MurC; MurD; amidobenzaldehyde; inhibitors; antibacterial; hydrazide.
