Bacterial resistance is compromising the use of β-lactam antibiotics including carbapenems. The main resistance mechanism against β-lactams is hydrolysis of the β-lactam ring mediated by serine- or metallo-β-lactamases (MBLs). Although several inhibitors of MBLs have been reported, none has been developed into a clinically useful inhibitor. Mercaptocarboxylic acids are among the most prominent scaffolds reported as MBL inhibitors. In this study, the carboxylate group of mercaptocarboxylic acids was replaced with bioisosteric groups like phosphonate esters, phosphonic acids and NH-tetrazoles. The influence of the replacement on the bioactivity and inhibitor binding was evaluated. A series of bioisosteres of previously reported inhibitors was synthesized and evaluated against the MBLs VIM-2, NDM-1 and GIM- 1. The most active inhibitors combined a mercapto group and a phosphonate ester or acid, with two/three carbon chains connecting a phenyl group. Surprisingly, also compounds containing thioacetate groups instead of thiols showed low IC50 values. High-resolution crystal structures of three inhibitors in complex with VIM-2 revealed hydrophobic interactions for the diethyl groups in the phosphonate ester (inhibitor 2b), the mercapto bridging the two active site zinc ions, and tight stacking of the benzene ring to the inhibitor between Phe62, Tyr67, Arg228 and His263. The inhibitors show reduced enzyme activity in Escherichia coli cells harboring MBL. The obtained results will be useful for further structural guided design of MBL inhibitors.

Prognostic Impacts of Angiopoietins in NSCLC Tumor Cells and Stroma : VEGF-A Impact Is Strongly Associated with Ang-2 Andersen, Sigve; Dønnem, Tom; Al-Shibli, Khalid Ibrahim; Al-Saad, Samer; Stenvold, Helge; Busund, Lill-Tove; Bremnes, Roy M. (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2011)Angiopoietins and their receptor Tie-2 are, in concert with VEGF-A, key mediators in angiogenesis. This study evaluates the prognostic impact of all known human angiopoietins (Ang-1, Ang-2 and Ang-4) and their receptor Tie-2, as well as their relation to the prognostic expression of VEGF-A. 335 unselected stage I-IIIA NSCLC-patients were included and tissue samples of respective tumor cells and ...
Humant papillomavirus : en litteraturstudie om HPV, dets relasjon til cancer og tiltak mot videre spredning av virus Gabrielsen, Endre (Master thesis; Mastergradsoppgave, 2012-06-01)I 1983 oppdaget zur Hausen sammenhengen mellom Humant Papillomavirus (HPV) og livmorhalskreft. På denne tiden visste man ikke at det var HPV som var årsaken til at Helaceller kunne leve in vitro. Ny forskning relaterer HPV til en rekke andre cancertyper. En stor andel anal-, oropharyngeal-, penis-, vaginal-, og vulvacancer skyldes HPV. Det er også påvist HPV i tumorvev fra øsofagus, larynx, lunge, ...
Hoem, Gry (Master thesis; Mastergradsoppgave, 2012-06)Fragile X syndrome (FXS) is caused by an expanded CGG repeat (>200 repeats) in the 5’ un-translated portion of the fragile mental retardation 1 gene (FMR1) leading to deficiency or absence of the FMR1 protein (FMRP). FMRP is an RNA carrier protein that controls the translation of a number of other genes that regulate synaptic development and plasticity. Autism occurs in approximately 30% of FXS ...
