A potent seryl tRNA synthetase inhibitor SB-217452 isolated from a Streptomyces species.
A potent inhibitor of seryl tRNA synthetase, designated SB-217452 has been isolated from Streptomyces sp. ATCC 700974. The fermentation, isolation, structure elucidation and some properties areExpand
Crystal structure of Staphylococcus aureus tyrosyl‐tRNA synthetase in complex with a class of potent and specific inhibitors
SB‐219383 and its analogues are a class of potent and specific inhibitors of bacterial tyrosyl‐tRNA synthetases. Crystal structures of these inhibitors have been solved in complex with theExpand
Optimisation of aryl substitution leading to potent methionyl tRNA synthetase inhibitors with excellent gram-positive antibacterial activity.
Optimisation of the left-hand-side aryl moiety of a file compound screening hit against Staphylococcus aureus methionyl tRNA synthetase led to the identification of a series of potent nanomolarExpand
Conformational and steric modifications of the pyran ring of the potassium-channel activator cromakalim
The syntheses of analogues of the novel smooth muscle relaxant cromakalim, in which the C-2 methyl groups have been successively replaced by hydrogen, are described and the relative stereochemistryExpand
Conformational restriction of methionyl tRNA synthetase inhibitors leading to analogues with potent inhibition and excellent gram-positive antibacterial activity.
Conformationally restricted analogues of the central linker unit of bacterial methionyl tRNA synthetase (MRS) inhibitors have been prepared. The (1S,2R)-cyclopentylmethyl moiety was identified as theExpand
Relaxant activity of 4-amido-3,4-dihydro-2H-1-benzopyran-3-ols and 4-amido-2H-1-benzopyrans on guinea pig isolated trachealis.
A series of 4-amido-3,4-dihydro-2H-1-benzopyran-3-ols and 4-amido-2H-1-benzopyrans related to the potassium channel activator cromakalim have been prepared and evaluated for their relaxant activityExpand
SB-203207 and SB-203208, two novel isoleucyl tRNA synthetase inhibitors from a Streptomyces sp. II. Structure determination.
Two novel isoleucyl tRNA synthetase inhibitors, SB-203207 and SB-203208 have been isolated from a Streptomyces sp. and found to be structurally related to altemicidin. Structures of SB-203207 andExpand
SB-219383, a novel tyrosyl tRNA synthetase inhibitor from a Micromonospora sp. II. Structure determination.
A novel tyrosyl tRNA synthetase inhibitor, SB-219383, has been isolated from a Micromonospora sp. The structure of SB-219383 has been elucidated by a combination of derivatisation, spectroscopic andExpand
Synthesis and activity of analogues of SB-219383: novel potent inhibitors of bacterial tyrosyl tRNA synthetase.
SB-219383 is a naturally occurring antibiotic, which acts by inhibition of tyrosyl tRNA synthetase. Semi-synthetic derivatives of SB-219383 were prepared with the objective of elucidating the keyExpand
