Two new xanthone antibiotics, citreamicin delta (1) and epsilon (2), with potent activity against Gram-positive pathogens including multidrug-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MDRSA) were discovered. Compounds 1 and 2 exhibited MIC values < 1 microg/mL versus a number of resistant strains. The compounds were obtained from EtOAc extracts of Streptomyces(More)
Resistance to currently available antibiotics has become a widely recognized crisis in the medical community. To address this, many companies and researchers are refocusing their attention towards natural products, which have an excellent track record of producing effective antibacterial drugs. The AMRI natural product library was screened for activity(More)
Aquaporins (AQPs) are a family of membrane proteins that function as channels facilitating water transport in response to osmotic gradients. These play critical roles in several normal physiological and pathological states and are targets for drug discovery. Selective inhibition of the AQP1 water channel may provide a new approach for the treatment of(More)
Three new antibiotics, neopyrrolomycins B (1), C (2), and D (3), with potent activity against Gram-positive pathogens were discovered. They exhibited MIC values < 1 microg/mL versus a number of resistant strains. The compounds were obtained from the ethyl acetate extracts of a Streptomyces sp. after purification by column chromatography and RP-HPLC. Their(More)
Through medicinal chemistry lead optimization studies focused on calculated properties and guided by X-ray crystallography and computational modeling, potent pan-JNK inhibitors were identified that showed submicromolar activity in a cellular assay. Using in vitro ADME profiling data, 9t was identified as possessing favorable permeability and a low potential(More)
