|Description||BTZ043 racemate is a decaprenylphosphoryl-β-D-ribose 2'-epimerase (DprE1) inhibitor acting as a new antimycobacterial agent that kill Mycobacterium tuberculosis.|
|Features||Greater activity against M. tuberculosis than EMB.|
By targeting decaprenylphosphoryl-β-D-ribose 2'-epimerase, BTZ043 abolishes the formation of decaprenylphosphoryl arabinose, leading to cell lysis and death of Mycobacterium tuberculosis. BTZ043 displays similar activity against all clinical isolates of M. tuberculosis, including multidrug-resistant and extensively drug-resistant strains. BTZ043 displays significant activity against M. tuberculosis H37Rv and Mycobacterium smegmatis with MIC of 1 ng/mL (2.3 nM) and 4 ng/mL (9.2 nM), respectively, which is more potent than those of the existing tuberculosis (TB) drugs isoniazid (INH) and ethambutol (EMB) with MIC of 0.02-0.2 μg/mL and 1-5 μg/mL, respectively. BTZ043 is less effective in two different model systems (auxotrophy and starvation) involving metabolically inert M. tuberculosis, indicating that BTZ043 blocks a step in active metabolism similar to isoniazid (INH). BTZ043 treatment in M. smegmatis cells decreases the growth rate rapidly followed by a swelling of the poles and lysis of the cells after a few hours, which is similar but delayed in M. tuberculosis.  BTZ043 (1/4 MIC 0.375 ng/mL) in combination with TMC207 (1/4 MIC 20 ng/mL) has a stronger cidal effect on M. tuberculosis but not BTZ-resistant M. tuberculosis mutant than TMC207 alone at a concentration of 80 ng/mL. 
|In vivo||In a mouse model of chronic tuberculosis, administration of BTZ043 at 37.5 mg/kg or 300 mg/kg for 4 weeks reduces the bacterial burden in the lungs and spleens by 1 and 2 logs, respectively. |

|In vivo||Add solvents to the product individually and in order(Data is from Selleck tests instead of citations):
For best results, use promptly after mixing.
* Please note that Selleck tests the solubility of all compounds in-house, and the actual solubility may differ slightly from published values. This is normal and is due to slight batch-to-batch variations.
Calculate the mass, volume or concentration required for a solution. The Selleck molarity calculator is based on the following equation:
Mass (mg) = Concentration (mM) × Volume (mL) × Molecular Weight (g/mol)
*When preparing stock solutions, please always use the batch-specific molecular weight of the product found on the via label and MSDS / COA (available on product pages).
Calculate the dilution required to prepare a stock solution. The Selleck dilution calculator is based on the following equation:
Concentration (start) x Volume (start) = Concentration (final) x Volume (final)
This equation is commonly abbreviated as: C1V1 = C2V2 ( Input Output )
* When preparing stock solutions always use the batch-specific molecular weight of the product found on the vial label and MSDS / COA (available online).

Definitions of molecular mass, molecular weight, molar mass and molar weight:
Molecular mass (molecular weight) is the mass of one molecule of a substance and is expressed in the unified atomic mass units (u). (1 u is equal to 1/12 the mass of one atom of carbon-12)
Molar mass (molar weight) is the mass of one mole of a substance and is expressed in g/mol.
