Abstract

The kanamycins form an important subgroup of the 4,6-disubstituted 2-deoxystreptamine aminoglycoside antibiotics, comprising kanamycin A, kanamycin B, tobramycin and dibekacin. These compounds interfere with protein synthesis by targeting the ribosomal decoding A site and they differ in the number and location of amino and hydroxy groups of the glucopyranosyl moiety (ring I). We have synthesized kanamycin analogues characterized by subtle variations of the 2' and 6' substituents of ring I. The functional activities of the kanamycins and the synthesized analogues were investigated i) in cell-free translation assays on wild-type and mutant bacterial ribosomes to study drug-target interaction, ii) in MIC assays to assess antibacterial activity, and iii) in rabbit reticulocyte translation assays to determine activity on eukaryotic ribosomes. Position 2' forms an intramolecular H-bond with O5 of ring II, helping the relative orientations of the two rings with respect to each other. This bond becomes critical for drug activity when a 6' OH substituent is present. Our results point to complex synergistic interactions crucial for aminoglycoside binding and activity.
