Abstract

N-(2-Chlorobenzyl)-substituted hydroxamate, readily produced by hydrolysis of ketoclomazone, was identified as an inhibitor of 1-deoxy-D-xylulose 5-phosphate synthase (DXS), with an IC50 value of 1.0 μM. The compound inhibited the growth of Haemophilus influenzae. A convenient spectroscopic method for assaying DXS using NADPH–lactate dehydrogenase (LDH) is also reported.
