Abstract
The design, synthesis, and in vitro biological activity of a series of nove l coumarin inhibitors of gyrase B is presented. Replacement of the 3-acylam ino residue (3-NHCOR) of coumarin drugs with reversed isosteres C(=O)R, C(= N-OR)R', COOR, CONHR and CONHOR leads to highly potent analogues which disp layed excellent inhibition of the negative supercoiling of the relaxed DNA and antibacterial activity.
