The emergence of gram-negative bacteria that exhibit multi-drug resistance, combined with the paucity of new antibiotics, poses a public health challenge (1). The production of bacterial beta-lactamase enzymes, in particular, is a common mechanism of drug resistance (2-4). The beta-lactamases evolved from bacteria with resistance to naturally-occurring beta-lactams or penams (5), agents which inhibit the transpeptidase involved in cell wall biosynthesis (6). Human medicine adapted these agents into synthetic antibiotics such as penicillins, cephalosporins, carbapenems, and monobactams that contain a 2-azetidone ring (5, 7). The metallo-beta-lactamases (MBL) are zinc-dependent class B beta-lactamases that hydrolyze the beta-lactam ring, rendering the antibiotic ineffective (6, 8). Increasingly, nosocomial beta-lactam antibiotic resistance arises in P. aeruginosa, Enterobacteriaceae, and other pathogenic bacteria via gene transfer of B1 MBLs (4, 9), including IMP (active on IMiPenem) (10) and VIM (Verona IMipenemase) (11, 12). For two of these enzymes, VIM-2 and IMP-1, no inhibitors exist for clinical use (6, 9). Thus, the identification of MBL inhibitors would provide useful tools for reducing nosocomial infections and elucidating their mechanism of action (13).

The purpose of this assay is to determine the VIM-2 inhibition constant (Ki) and mode of inhibition of powder samples of compounds identifed as nonselective VIM-2 inhibitor probe candidates and selected analogs. This assay serves to confirm activity.
Kinetic assays were conducted by incubating the nitrocefin substrate with varying inhibitor concentrations and 0.1 nM VIM-2 enzyme at room temperature in buffer containing 50 mM HEPES, 50 uM ZnSO4, 0.05% Brij 35, pH 7.1. Absorbance was measured on a Tecan Safire2 monochromatic microplate reader at 495 nm. Initial velocities were obtained from plots of absorbance at 495 nm versus time, using data points from only the linear portion of the hydrolysis curve. Substrate hydrolysis was continuously monitored. Initial velocities were plotted vs. substrate concentration and kinetic parameters were calculated using Graphpad Prism version 5.01 suite of programs. All Ki values were determined by non-linear regression (hyperbolic equation) analysis using the mixed inhibition model which allows for simultaneous determination of mechanism of inhibition. Mechanism of inhibition was determined using the "alpha" parameter derived from a mixed-model inhibition by GraphPad Prism. The mechanism of inhibition was additionally evaluated by Hanes-Woolf and Lineweaver-Burke plots. Ki values were calculated from non-linear regression. The number of replicates for this assay is 2.
For this VIM-2 assay, the final reaction volume was 44 uL, the final nominal concentration of VIM-2 enzyme was 0.1 nM, the concentration of nitrocefin varied, and 384-well SWCN plates (Greiner, Part 789005) were used. Well absorbance was read using a Tecan platereader for 6 minutes at 495 nm.
PubChem Activity Outcome and Score:
Compounds with an Ki greater than 10 uM were considered inactive. Compounds with an Ki equal to or less than 10 uM were considered active.
Activity score was then ranked by the potency of the compounds with fitted curves, with the most potent compounds assigned the highest activity scores.
The PubChem Activity Score range for active compounds is 100-1. There are no active compounds.
