Pyruvate dehydrogenase multienzyme complex (PDHc) is a key enzyme linking glycolysis and the tricarboxylic acid cycle. Currently, there is no fungicide targeting pyruvate decarboxylase (PDHc-E1), the purpose of this study was to obtain compounds with bactericidal activity by designing inhibitors against PDHc-E1. On the basis of lead compound L, fourteen novel aminopyrimidine derivatives I were designed and synthesized by the condensation reaction of hydrazine and aldehydes as potential PDHc-E1 inhibitors. The most effective 5-((2-(4-bromophenyl)hydrazono)methyl)-2-methylpyridin-4-amine (I-6) with good E. coli PDHc-E1 enzyme inhibitory activity (IC50=26.45 μmol/L) exhibited most powerful inhibitory potency against Cercospora arachidicola Hori (EC50 14.11 μg/mL) and Physalospora piricola Nose (EC50 0.64 μg/mL). Therefore it could obtain the compound with antifungal activity against microorganism PDHc-E1 enzyme by modifying the bridged linkage in lead structure 2-methyl-4-amino-pyrimidine derivatives L.

Key words: PDHc-E1, fungicide, lead compound, 2-methyl-4-amino-pyrimidine derivatives
