    Abstract

    Pilicides block pili formation by binding to pilus chaperones and blocking their function in the chaperone/usher pathway in E. coli. Various C-2 substituents were introduced on the pilicide scaffold by design and synthetic method developments. Experimental evaluation showed that proper substitution of this position affected the biological activity of the compound. Aryl substituents resulted in pilicides with significantly increased potencies as measured in pill-dependent biofilm and hemagglutination assays. The structural basis of the PapD chaperone-pilicide interactions was determined by X-ray crystallography.
