Molecular Modeling, Synthesis And Biological Evaluation of Heterocyclic Hydroxamic Acids Designed as Helicobacter Pylori Urease Inhibitors

Abstract:

A computer-generated homology model of the antimicrobial target Helicobacter pylori urease was derived, using the x-ray crystal structure of Klebsiella aerogenes as a template, in order to design novel urease inhibitors. Based on these computational studies, several heterocyclic hydroxamic acid derivatives have been designed, synthesized, and examined for their ability to inhibit urease activity.
