Abstract
Potent and selective Candida albicans N-myristoyltransferase (CaNmt) inhibi tors have been identified through optimization of a lead compound 1 discove red by random screening. The inhibitor design is based on the crystal struc ture of the CaNmt complex with compound (S)-3 and structure-activity relati onships (SARs) have been clarified. Modification of the C-4 side chain of 1 has led to thr discovery of a potent and selective CaNmt inhibitor 11 (RO- 09-4609), which exhibits antifungal activity against C. albicans in vitro, (C) 2001 Elsevier Science Ltd.
