Bacterial infections are a serious threat to human health due to the development of resistance against the presently used antibiotics. The problem of growing and widespread antibiotic resistance is only getting worse with the shortage of new classes of antibiotics, creating a substantial unmet medical need in the treatment of serious bacterial infections. Therefore, in the present work, we report 18 novel hybrid thiazolidine-1,2,4-triazole derivatives as DNA gyrase inhibitors. The derivatives were synthesized by multistep organic synthesis and characterized by spectroscopic methods ( H and C nuclear magnetic resonance and mass spectroscopy). The derivatives were tested for DNA gyrase inhibition, and the result emphasized that the synthesized derivatives have a tendency to inhibit the function of DNA gyrase. Furthermore, the compounds were also tested for antibacterial activity against three Gram-positive (Bacillus subtilis [NCIM 2063], Bacillus cereus [NCIM 2156], Staphylococcus aureus [NCIM 2079]) and two Gram-negative (Escherichia coli [NCIM 2065], Proteus vulgaris [NCIM 2027]) bacteria. The derivatives showed a significant-to-moderate antibacterial activity with noticeable antibiofilm efficacy. Quantitative structure-activity relationship (QSAR), ADME (absorption, distribution, metabolism, elimination) calculation, molecular docking, radial distribution function, and 2D fingerprinting were also performed to elucidate fundamental structural fragments essential for their bioactivity. These studies suggest that the derivatives 10b and 10n have lead antibacterial properties with significant DNA gyrase inhibitory efficacy, and they can serve as a starting scaffold for the further development of new broad-spectrum antibacterial agents.

1,2,4-Triazole-conjugated 1,3,4-thiadiazole hybrid scaffolds: A potent ameliorant of carrageenan-induced inflammation by lessening proinflammatory mediators.

Inflammation acts as an alarming signal for the progression of various biological complications. Various reports in the literature have revealed that heterocycle-containing synthetic compounds have a restorative capability against acute and chronic inflammatory stages. In the current study, we synthesized a series of 1,2,4-triazole-conjugated 1,3,4-thiadiazole hybrid scaffolds and evaluated their impacts against carrageenan-induced paw edema and proinflammatory markers in Wistar rats. Further, 3D QSAR study (three-dimensional quantitative structure-activity relationships), ADMET (absorption, distribution, metabolism, and excretion) profiling, and docking studies were performed to determine the possible mechanism of the action of the derivatives. The study shows that the most active derivatives, 13f and 13g, have optimal logP, a higher anti-inflammatory activity score, and poor metabolism at various sites of cytochrome P450. The docking studies recommended that the synthesized compounds have a similar affinity as the ligands A307, 63X, and S58 to interact with tumor necrosis factor-α, COX-1, and COX-2. So, these molecules will definitely hold a promise for the future drug development initiative.
