In this study, a range of dihydropyrrolone (DHP) analogues were synthesized via the lactone-lactam conversion of lactone intermediates. The synthesized compounds were tested for their ability to inhibit QS, biofilm formation and bacterial growth of Pseudomonas aeruginosa. The compounds were also docked into a LasR crystal structure to rationalize the observed structure-activity relationships. The most active compound identified in this study was compound 9i, which showed 63.1% QS inhibition of at 31.25 µM and 60% biofilm reduction at 250 µM with only moderate toxicity towards bacterial cell growth.||URI:||https://hdl.handle.net/10356/144458||ISSN:||0960-894X||DOI:||10.1016/j.bmcl.2019.03.004||Rights:||© 2019 Elsevier Ltd.
