Bacterial resistance to the available antibiotic agents underlines an urgent need for the discovery of novel antibacterial agents. Members of the bacterial Mur ligase family MurC-MurF involved in the intracellular stages of the bacterial peptidoglycan biosynthesis have recently emerged as a collection of attractive targets for novel antibacterial drug(More)
N-(5-(5-nitro-2-oxo-1,2-dihydro-3H-indol-3-ylidene)4-oxo-2-thioxo-1,3-thiazolidin-3-yl)nicotinamide, a 2-oxoindolinylidene derivative with novel structure scaffold, was evaluated for inhibition potency against the MurD enzyme from Escherichia coli using an enzyme steady-state kinetics study. The compound exerted competitive inhibition with respect to UMA, a(More)
