N(2)-Substituted D, L-Cycloserine Derivatives Academic Article uri icon

abstract

  • A select series of N(2)-substituted D,L-cycloserine derivatives were prepared a ndevaluated for inhibitory activity against purified alanine racemases (alr gene product) from Escherichia coli, Staphylococcus aureus, and Mycobacterium tuberculosis, as well as in a growth inhibition assay. N(2)-Modification led to loss of enzymatic inhibitory activity in most cases consistent with a recent proposal for cycloserine function.
