The emergence of drug resistant strains of important human pathogens has made urgent the necessity of finding new targets and novel antimicrobial agents. One of the most promising targets is FabH. Here we summarize the progress made in the design of FabH inhibitors and the role played by the 3D-structure of the enzyme as well as by the modeling studies in the design of new FabH inhibitors.

Keywords: Drug design, FabH, FAS, FabH inhibitors.
