Small molecule FKBP inhibitors were prepared with inhibitory activity ranging from micromolar to nanomolar. The design of these inhibitors derives from a structural analysis of the substrates for FKBP and cyclophilin. As a consequence of this analysis two key observations were made, namely: (1) amino ketone moieties are suitable as FKBP recognition elements(More)
The antibacterial properties of novel quinoline-indole (QI) agents were examined. QI agents demonstrated potent bactericidal activities against Staphylococcus aureus, killing by lytic and nonlytic mechanisms. S. aureus mutants resistant to a lytic QI agent (SEP 155342) and a nonlytic QI agent (SEP 118843) arose at frequencies of 1.4 x 10(-9) and 1.2 x(More)
A novel structural class of antibacterials, 2-(1H-indol-3-yl)quinolines, effective against methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA), was discovered from a combinatorial library. A structure-activity relationship (SAR) study was conducted to determine the pharmacophore and increase the potency of these compounds. Compounds were prepared that had(More)
Ruthenium catalyzed ring opening cross-metathesis of resin-bound bicyclic alkenes with terminal aryl olefins was utilized for the construction of a combinatorial library containing highly functionalized cyclopentane derivatives. The technology described herein represents a convergent method for the diastereospecific synthesis of unique cyclopentane(More)
Novel antibacterials agents, 2-(1H-indol-3-yl)tetrahydroquinolines, were prepared using hetero Diels-Alder chemistry and found to be effective in vitro against methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA). A structure-activity relationship (SAR) study was conducted to determine the important features of this series and to increase the potency of these(More)
