  1. Image UploadWhat is this molecule?
    6-aminopenicillinic acid, the penicillin pharmacophore
  2. Image UploadThe 2 methyls off the thiazolidine ring have what significance?
    Essential for activity and are present on all marketed products
  3. Image UploadThe nature of the R group will determine What characteristic?
    Spectrum of activity, Stability against hydrolysis by beta-lactamases, Acid stability, GI absorption, Side effects, DDIs and protein binding
  4. Image UploadWhat action is occurring in this picture?
    In vitro hydrolysis of a penicillin by a base
  5. Image Upload The rare of this hydrolysis reaction will increase with increasing _________.
  6. Image Upload What reaction is occurring in the picture?
    In vitro or in vivo penicillin decomposition by acid
  7. Image Upload At what pH must the media be for this reaction to occur?
    < 3
  8. Image UploadPreventing nucleophilic attack by the side chain acyl O at the lactam carbonyl C will have what effect on the Penicillin molecule?
    Increase acid stability
  9. Image Upload
    Is the C3-COOH essential, why or why not?
    Yes, it mimics the glutamate in the bacterial cell wall
  10. Image Upload
    In what form does the C3-COOH exist at physiological pH?
  11. Image Upload
    If you create an inorganic salt (e.g. sodium or potassium) from the C3-COOH group, would it be water soluble or insoluble?
  12. Image Upload
    If you create an organic salt from the C3-COOH group, would it be water soluble or insoluble?
  13. Image Upload
     If you wanted to formulate a penicillin to be administered by IV, how would you alter this molecule?
    Make the C3-COOH an inorganic salt with K or Na
  14. Image Upload
    What is this structure?
    Pen G
  15. Image Upload
     Why is this structure acid liable?
    Because there is negligible electronic influence on side-chain acyl carbonyl, so the acyl carbonyl oxygen has good δ- character
  16. Image Upload
    Why is Pen G susceptible to penicillinases?
    The benzyl group is not bulky enough to protect the structure from attack
  17. Image Upload
    What characteristic of the R group on Pen G promotes activity against G+ organisms?
    Lipophilicity of the Benzyl group
  18. Image Upload
    What characteristic of the R group on Pen G prevents activity against G- organisms?
    Lipophilicity of the Benzyl group
  19. Image Upload
    The lipophilic nature of the benzyl group on Pen G has what effect on the molecule?
    Promotes activity against G+, prevents activity against G-, promotes protein binding and promote CNS distribution
  20. Image Upload
    Why is Pen G not good for systemic infections?
    Lipophilicty of the benzyl group promotes protein binding and reduces percent free drug
  21. Image Upload
    What structure of Pen G allows it to be used in the treatment of meningitis caused by strep pneumoniae?
    The lipophilic benzyl group, which allows it to cross the BBB and attack G+ organisms
  22. Image Upload
    What aspect of Pen G allows it to cause side effects like nervousness, dizziness and convulsions?
    The lipophilic benzyl group that allows penetration of the BBB
  23. Image Upload
    What enhancement of activity occurs when you add substituents on the benzene group of Pen G?
  24. Image Upload What is this structure?
  25. Image UploadWhat is this structure?
    Thienyl group
  26. Image Upload
    What is the R group called on Ticarcillin?
    Thienyl group
  27. Image Upload
    How does the Thienyl group on Ticarcillin compare to a benzene?
    More polar than benzene and may be responsible for increased anaerobic activity
  28. Image UploadWhat is the name of the R side chain on this molecule?
    Phenoxymethyl group
  29. Image Upload
     What is this R group called?
  30. Image Upload
    How does the side chain of Pen V inhibit nucleophilic attack at the lactam carbonyl carbon in acidic medium?
    The O atom on the side chain is negative inducing, which decreases the nucleophilic character of the side chain acyl Oxygen, inhibiting nucleophilic attack
  31. Image Upload How can you change this molecule to provide protection against B-lactamase hydrolysis?
    Incorporate the on the side chain into a ring, providing sufficient steric hindrance
  32. Image Upload
     What is the benefit of having an R group of one of these structures on your penicillin?
    Sterically hinders attack by B-lactamases
  33. Image Upload
    The ortho substituents on the rings (R1, R2) have what significance?
    Important for maximum beta-lactamase inhibiting activity (increase steric hindrance) AND for oral activity
  34. Image Upload What should R1 and R2 be in order for the molecule to have oral activity?
    Electron withdrawing (e.g. Cl)
  35. Image Upload
    Cloxacillin has string B-lactamase inhibition and good oral activity, why?
    Isoxazole ring blocks B-lactamases and electron withdrawing Cl group enhances this and adds oral activity
