Abstract

Dihydrodipicolinate synthase (DHDPS) is a key enzyme in lysine biosynthesis and an important antibiotic target. The enzyme catalyses the condensation of (S)-aspartate semialdehyde (ASA) and pyruvate to form dihydrodipicolinate. Two new irreversible inhibitors of dihydrodipicolinate synthase are reported, designed to mimic the acyclic enzyme-bound condensation product of ASA and pyruvate. These compounds represent an important new lead in the design of potent inhibitors for this enzyme.
