Abstract

The appearance multi-drug resistant Mycobacterium tuberculosis (MTB) throughout the world has prompted a search for new. safer and more active agents against tuberculosis. Based on studies of the biosynthesis of mycobacterial cell wall polysaccharides, octyl 5-O-(alpha -D-arabinofuranosyl)-alpha -D-arabinofuranoside analogues were synthesized and evaluated as inhibitors for Al. tuberculosis and Mycobacterium avium. A cell free assay system has been used for the evaluation of these disaccharides as substrates for mycobacterial arabinosyltransferase activity. (C) 2001 Elsevier Science Ltd. All rights reserved.
