The well-known Ugi reaction of aldehydes with amines, carboxylic acids and isocyanides leads to the formation of acyclic α-acylaminocarboxamides. Replacement of the carboxylic acid derivatives with β-acyl substituted acrylic acids gives access to highly substituted 2,5-diketopiperazines in one single reaction-step without additives or complex reaction(More)
The bacteria Burkholderia pseudomallei and Legionella pneumophila cause severe diseases like melioidosis and Legionnaire's disease with high mortality rates despite antibiotic treatment. Due to increasing antibiotic resistances against these and other Gram-negative bacteria, alternative therapeutical strategies are in urgent demand. As a virulence factor,(More)
The pathogenic bacteria Chlamydia trachomatis, Neisseria gonorrhoeae and Neisseria meningitidis express the surface-exposed macrophage infectivity potentiator (MIP)-like protein, which plays a role in their pathogenicity. MIP exhibits a peptidyl-prolyl isomerase (PPIase) activity that is inhibited by rapamycin and FK506. In this study, pipecolic acid(More)
