4-alkoxy-3-arylfuran-2(5H)-ones as inhibitors of tyrosyl-tRNA synthetase: synthesis, molecular docking and antibacterial evaluation.

A series of novel 4-alkoxy-3-arylfuran-2(5H)-ones as tyrosyl-tRNA synthetase inhibitors were synthesized. Of these compounds, 3-(4-hydroxyphenyl)-4-(2-morpholinoethoxy)furan-2(5H)-one (27) was the most potent. The binding model and structure-activity relationship indicate that replacement of morpholine-ring in the side chain of 27 with a substituent… CONTINUE READING
