The use of aminoglycoside derivatives to study the mechanism of aminoglycoside 6'-N-acetyltransferase and the role of 6'-NH2 in antibacterial activity.


Aminoglycoside antibiotics act by binding to 16S rRNA. Resistance to these antibiotics occurs via drug modifications by enzymes such as aminoglycoside 6'-N-acetyltransferases (AAC(6')s). We report here the regioselective and efficient synthesis of N-6'-acylated aminoglycosides and their use as probes to study AAC(6')-Ii and aminoglycoside-RNA complexes. Our… (More)
