Nucleoside triphosphate mimicry: a sugar triazolyl nucleoside as an ATP-competitive inhibitor of B. anthracis pantothenate kinase.


Journal Article

The synthesis of a library of nucleoside triphosphate mimetics is described where the Mg(2+) chelated triphosphate sidechain is replaced by an uncharged methylene-triazole linked monosaccharide sidechain. The compounds have been evaluated as inhibitors of Bacillus anthracis pantothenate kinase and a competitive inhibitor has been identified with a K(i) that is 3-fold lower than the K(m) value of ATP.
