The resistance to antimicrobials and biocides observed in mycobacteria which do not cause tuberculosis (MNT) determines the necessity to develop drugs. The present study evaluated the activity of naphthoquinones and heterocyclic derivatives obtained from lapachol against Mycobacterium kansasii, M. marinum, and M. abscessus, through the REMA method. It was observed that lapachol was inactive against the three mycobateria species, while β-lapachone and nor-β-lapachone showed activity only against M. marinum. The most active substances for M. kansasii were the derivates 2, 3, 7, and 11, in which compound 2 (CMI = 0.96 μM) was the most active. For M. marinum, 2, 11, and 14 were the most active, while against M. abcessus the compound 3 was the only active. The results showed a wide and diversified resistance spectrum among the species studied, which could be related to the molecular structure and position of the substituting groups, indicating the potentiality of these molecules as antimicrobial prototypes.

Twenty-three naphthoimidazoles and six naphthoxazoles were synthesised and evaluated against susceptible and rifampicin- and isoniazid-resistant strains of Mycobacterium tuberculosis. Among all the compounds evaluated, fourteen presented MIC values in the range of 0.78 to 6.25 μg/mL against susceptible and resistant strains of M. tuberculosis. Five structures were solved by X-ray crystallographic analysis. These substances are promising antimycobacterial prototypes. © 2012 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.

Several quinonoid and phenazine compounds were synthesized in moderate to high yields and showed activity against H 37Rv, rifampicin and isoniazid-resistance strains of Mycobacterium tuberculosis. The cytotoxity of the compounds were evaluated against human peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMC) and these substances emerge as promising antitubercular prototypes. © 2011 Elsevier Masson SAS.

Background and Aims: Nontuberculous mycobacteria (NTM) are mainly distributed as important emerging pathogens in patients with chronic or immunosuppressive diseases. Accurate identification of causative species is crucial for proper treatment and patient follow-up. However, several difficulties are associated with phenotypic and molecular diagnostic methods for precise identification at the species level due to shared metabolic and genetic characteristics. We undertook this study to evaluate the application of the phylogenetic method based on hsp65 gene into Telenti's PCR-restriction enzyme analysis (PRA) for molecular identification of NTM. Methods: The study population was comprised of 1646 Mycobacterium clinical isolates (AFB positive) collected from 2008-2011, of which 537 (32.6%) were MNT identified by PRA analysis. DNA sequencing of hsp65 in 53 isolates (10%) was performed. Sequence identification through NCBI-Basic Local Alignment Search Tool (BLAST) achieved correct identification in 23 isolates. Phylogenetic trees including hsp65 available GenBank sequences for all described genres of NTM and hsp65 obtained sequences were constructed using Mega 5.05 software. We compared sequence identification based on phylogenetic clustering and BLAST similarity search. Results: Phylogenetic clustering allowed more specific differentiation of closely related species and clearer identification in comparison with BLAST; 30 Mycobacterium species (this is the first report of isolation of some of these from clinical samples in Mexico) were identified in this way. Conclusions: The proposed 440 bp hsp65 phylogenetic method allows a better identification tool to differentiate Mycobacterium species and is useful to complement diagnosis and epidemiological surveillance of NTM. © 2014 IMSS.
