The increasing multi-drug resistance has become a major threat to the public health. Overexpression of multidrug efflux pumps is one of the major mechanisms of drug resistance in bacteria. Since active efflux of antibacterial agents plays a significant role in mediating drug resistance in bacteria, the inhibition of efflux pumps appears to be a promising(More)
Silver nanowires synthesized through a polyol process using polyvinylpyrrolidone as protection (PVP-AgNWs) were used as a new electrode material for constructing a sensor. Hydrogen peroxide (H(2)O(2)) and glucose were used as analytes to demonstrate the sensor performance of the PVP-AgNWs. It is found that the PVP-AgNWs-modified glassy carbon electrode(More)
We report a novel hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) and hydrazine sensor based on low-cost poly(vinylpyrrolidone)-protected silver nanocubes (PVP-AgNCs). The monodisperse silver nanocubes were prepared by adding a trace amount of sodium sulfide in the conventional polyol synthesis for fast reduction of silver nitrate under protection of argon. The sensor was(More)
Novel series of 3-substituted 2,6-difluorobenzamide derivatives as FtsZ inhibitors were designed, synthesized and evaluated for their in vitro antibacterial activity against various phenotype of Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacteria, and their cell division inhibitory activity against three representative strains. As a result, 3-chloroalkoxy derivative(More)
Three novel structural series of 4″-O-(1-aralkyl-1,2,3-triazol-4-methyl-carbamoyl) azithromycin analogs were designed, synthesized and evaluated for their in vitro antibacterial activity. All the target compounds exhibited excellent activity against erythromycin-susceptible Streptococcus pyogenes, and significantly improved activity against three phenotypes(More)
Drug efflux pumps confer multidrug resistance to dangerous pathogens which makes these pumps important drug targets. We have synthesised a novel series of compounds based on a 2-naphthamide pharmacore aimed at inhibiting the efflux pumps from Gram-negative bacteria. The archeatypical transporter AcrB from Escherichia coli was used as model efflux pump as(More)
Multidrug efflux protein complexes such as AcrAB-TolC from Escherichia coli are paramount in multidrug resistance in Gram-negative bacteria and are also implicated in other processes such as virulence and biofilm formation. Hence efflux pump inhibition, as a means to reverse antimicrobial resistance in clinically relevant pathogens, has gained increased(More)
The objectives of this study were to detect the immunogenicity of a lipopolysaccharide (LPS) binding protein (LBP) mimic epitope peptide vaccine and evaluate its effect on controlling excessive and uncontrolled inflammatory reactions in mice with acute lung injury. The vaccine was prepared by mixing self-made LBP mimic epitope multiple antigen peptide (MAP)(More)
Hepatitis C is a viral liver infection considered as the major cause of cirrhosis and hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). The HCV NS5B polymerase, an RNA-dependent RNA polymerase, is essential for HCV replication, which is able to catalyze the synthesis of positive (genomic) and negative (template) strand HCV RNA, but has no functional equivalent in mammalian(More)
