1,3-Dioxane-Linked Bacterial Topoisomerase Inhibitors with Enhanced Antibacterial Activity and Reduced hERG Inhibition
ACS Infectious Diseases
The development of new therapies to treat methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) is needed to counteract the significant threat that MRSA presents to human health. Novel inhibitors of DNA gyrase and topoisomerase IV (TopoIV) constitute one highly promising approach, but continued optimization is required to realize the full potential of this class of antibiotics. Herein, we report further studies on a series of dioxane-linked derivatives, demonstrating improved antistaphylococcal activity and reduced hERG inhibition. A subseries of analogues also possesses enhanced inhibition of the secondary target, TopoIV.
