Data inside the parentheses are inhibition activities (IC50 values) of the compounds. diacetate) is the most active one with improved MIC value of 100 μg/mL against H. pylori (see Fig. 2). Potential binding proteins of compound 1 were screened from PDTD using TarFisDock. 0 kJ/mol were identified (19). Homology search indicated that only two proteins of the fifteen candidates, diaminopimelate decarboxylase (DC) and PDF, have homologous proteins in the genome of H. pylori . Enzymatic assay demonstrated compounds 1 and 2 are the potent inhibitors against the H.
