R. Munavar Sulthana, S. Darlin Quine, Synthesis, Characterization, Antibacterial Evaluation and Molecular Docking Studies of 2-Azetidinone Derivatives as Novel DNA Gyrase Inhibitors, ILCPA Volume 47, International Letters of Chemistry, Physics and Astronomy (Volume 47)
    Newly designed 2-azetidinone derivatives (4a-e) were synthesized in good yields and characterised by advanced spectroscopic studies. The title compounds were evaluated for qualitative (zone of inhibition) by agar diffusion method against Staphylococcus aureus, Bacillus subtilis, Escherichia coli, Pseudomonas aeruginosa and Streptococcus pyogenes. Some of the analogues were found to have comparable or even more potency than the standard drugs. Docking study was performed to check interaction of synthesized compounds with the target DNA gyrase.
