Summary of "Structures, semisyntheses, and absolute configurations of the antiplasmodial α-substituted β-lactam monamphilectines B and C from the sponge Svenzea flava."

Bioassay-guided fractionation of the Caribbean sponge Svenzea flava collected near Mona Island, off the west coast of Puerto Rico, led to the isolation of two isocyanide amphilectane-type diterpenes named monamphilectines B and C (2 and 3). Attached to the backbone of each of these compounds is the first α-substituted monocyclic β-lactam ring to be isolated from a marine organism. The molecular structures of 2 and 3 were established by spectroscopic methods and then confirmed unequivocally by chemical correlation and comparison of physical and chemical data with the natural products. The new β-lactams were successfully synthesized in one step, starting from the known diisocyanide 4, via parallel Ugi four-center three-component reactions (U-4C-3CR) that also established their absolute stereostructures. Interestingly, compounds 2 and 3 exhibited activities in the low nanomolar range against the human malaria parasite Plasmodium falciparum.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Nonsusceptibility of bacteria to the action of the beta-lactam antibiotics. Mechanisms responsible for beta-lactam resistance may be degradation of antibiotics by BETA-LACTAMASES, failure of antibiotics to penetrate, or low-affinity binding of antibiotics to targets.

Monocyclic, bacterially produced or semisynthetic beta-lactam antibiotics. They lack the double ring construction of the traditional beta-lactam antibiotics and can be easily synthesized.

Four-membered cyclic AMIDES, best known for the PENICILLINS based on a bicyclo-thiazolidine, as well as the CEPHALOSPORINS based on a bicyclo-thiazine, and including monocyclic MONOBACTAMS. The BETA-LACTAMASES hydrolyze the beta lactam ring, accounting for BETA-LACTAM RESISTANCE of infective bacteria.

A beta-lactamase inhibitor with very weak antibacterial action. The compound prevents antibiotic destruction of beta-lactam antibiotics by inhibiting beta-lactamases, thus extending their spectrum activity. Combinations of sulbactam with beta-lactam antibiotics have been used successfully for the therapy of infections caused by organisms resistant to the antibiotic alone.

Phenyl esters of carbamic acid or of N-substituted carbamic acids. Structures are similar to PHENYLUREA COMPOUNDS with a carbamate in place of the urea.
