Discovery of Taniborbactam (VNRX-5133): A Broad-Spectrum Serine- and Metallo-β-Lactamase Inhibitor for Carbapenem-Resistant Bacterial Infections.

A major resistance mechanism in Gram-negative bacteria is the production of β-lactamase enzymes. Originally recognized for their ability to hydrolyze penicillins, emergent β-lactamases can now confe...

Bicyclic Boronate VNRX-5133 Inhibits Metallo- and Serine-β-Lactamases.

The bicyclic boronate VNRX-5133 is a new type of β-lactamase inhibitor in clinical development. We report that VNRX-5133 inhibits serine-β-lactamases (SBLs) and some clinically important metallo-β-...

Antibacterial activity of (clove) against uropathogens producing ESBL, MBL, and AmpC beta-lactamase: Are we close to getting a new antibacterial agent?

The present study was done to access the antibacterial activity of clove () against extended-spectrum beta-lactamase (ESBL), metallo-beta-lactamase (MBL), and AmpC beta-lactamase-producing gram-negati...

A cephalosporin-chemiluminescent conjugate increases beta-lactamase detection sensitivity by four orders of magnitude.

The expression of beta-lactamases in bacteria is a central cause of drug resistance. In this report, we present a beta-lactamase chemiluminescent probe, termed CCP, which can for the first time detect...

Synthesis and investigation of inhibitory activities of imidazole derivatives against the metallo-β-lactamase IMP-1.

Mutations in bacteria can result in antibiotic resistance due to the overuse or abuse of β-lactam antibiotics. One strategy which bacteria can become resistance toward antibiotics is secreting of met...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Clavulanic acid and its salts and esters. The acid is a suicide inhibitor of bacterial beta-lactamase enzymes from Streptomyces clavuligerus. Administered alone, it has only weak antibacterial activity against most organisms, but given in combination with beta-lactam antibiotics prevents antibiotic inactivation by microbial lactamase.

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.

A member of the family of TISSUE INHIBITOR OF METALLOPROTEINASES. It is a N-glycosylated protein, molecular weight 28 kD, produced by a vast range of cell types and found in a variety of tissues and body fluids. It has been shown to suppress metastasis and inhibit tumor invasion in vitro.

The concentration of a compound needed to reduce population growth of organisms, including eukaryotic cells, by 50% in vitro. Though often expressed to denote in vitro antibacterial activity, it is also used as a benchmark for cytotoxicity to eukaryotic cells in culture.

Endogenous substances and drugs that inhibit or block the activity of BETA-LACTAMASES.
