Abstract

Four heteroaromatic compounds bearing nitrate esters were selected using a virtual screening procedure as putative sterol 14α-demethylase (CYP51) Candida albicans inhibitors. Compounds were examined for their inhibition on C. albicans growth and biofilm formation as well as for their toxicity. NMR studies, in silico docking and molecular dynamics simulations were used to further investigate selectivity of compounds to fungal CYP51. All compounds exhibited good antimicrobial properties, indicated with low minimal inhibitory concentrations and ability to inhibit formation of fungal biofilm. Moreover, all the compounds had the ability to inhibit growth of C. albicans cells. N-(2-nitooxyethyl)-1Η-indol-2-carboxamide was the only compound with selectivity on C. albicans CYP51 which did not exhibit cytotoxic effect on cells isolated from liver and should be further investigated for selective application in new leads for the treatment of candidiasis.

Attention Score in Context

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 1. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 26 January 2018.
All research outputs
#19,228,030
of 24,484,013 outputs
Outputs from ChemMedChem
#2,506
of 3,487 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#321,149
of 449,743 outputs
Outputs of similar age from ChemMedChem
#59
of 80 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 24,484,013 research outputs across all sources so far. This one is in the 18th percentile – i.e., 18% of other outputs scored the same or lower than it.
So far Altmetric has tracked 3,487 research outputs from this source. They receive a mean Attention Score of 4.0. This one is in the 21st percentile – i.e., 21% of its peers scored the same or lower than it.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 449,743 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one is in the 24th percentile – i.e., 24% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
We're also able to compare this research output to 80 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one is in the 23rd percentile – i.e., 23% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
