Pyrazinamide (PZA), an essential constituent of short-course tuberculosis chemotherapy, binds weakly but selectively to Sirtuin 6 (SIRT6). Despite the structural similarities between nicotinamide (NAM), PZA, and pyrazinoic acid (POA), these inhibitors modulate SIRT6 by different mechanisms and through different binding sites...

Pyrazinamide (PZA) is a first-line tuberculosis drug that plays a unique role in shortening the duration of tuberculosis chemotherapy. PZA is hydrolyzed intracellularly to pyrazinoic acid (POA) by pyrazinamidase (PZase, encoded by pncA), an enzyme frequently lost in PZA-resistant strains...

Recently, we disclosed a series of potent pyrimidine benzamide-based thrombopoietin receptor agonists. Unfortunately, the structural features required for the desired activity conferred physicochemical properties that were not favorable for the development of an oral agent. The physical properties of the...

A series of pyrazine-2-carboxylic acid hydrazide derivatives were synthesized and screened for their activity against Mycobacterium tuberculosis. The results show that pyrazine-2-carboxylic acid hydrazide-hydrazone derivatives 3a-l were less active than pyrazinamide. In contrast, the N(4)-ethyl-N(1)-pyrazinoyl-thiosemicarbazide 4 showed the highest activity...
