Sample text

Upon binding of the hormone, a conformational shift is induced that causes a dimerization of the receptor protein. As a consequence, the catalytic domains of the two subunits mutually phosphorylate tyrosine residues at the C-termini. Thus, the tyrosine kinase domains are activated to phosphorylate target proteins, like the signaling protein Ras, which thus is induced to activate further protein kinases in a cascade manner, finally producing phosphorylated active mitogen-activated protein kinase (MAPK).

For example, it has been shown that the 1l,12-carbamate analogs 24 of clarithromycin 25 [36], their 3-keto derivatives 26 and more recently the tricyclic ketolide 27 have increased activity against certain macrolide-susceptible and macrolideresistant pathogens [37] (Fig. 8). Fluoroquinolones Fluoroquinolones are potent antibacterial agents that act by inhibiting DNA synthesis. They target DNA gyrase and DNA topoisomerase IV, two essential enzymes for bacterial growth. The action of quinolones on bacteria brings about a decreased introduction of negative supertwists into DNA, decreased decatenation of interlocked circles, damage to DNA and inhibition of DNA synthesis [38].
