Resumo

Human African trypanosomiasis, Chagas disease, and leishmaniasis are human infections caused by kinetoplastid parasites of the genera Trypanosoma and Leishmania. Besides their severity and global impact, treatments are still challenging. Currently available drugs have important limitations, highlighting the urgent need to develop new drugs. Phosphoglucose isomerase (PGI) is considered a promising target for the development of antiparasitic drugs, as it acts on two essential metabolic pathways, glycolysis and gluconeogenesis. Herein, we describe the identification of new nonphosphorylated inhibitors of Leishmania mexicana PGI (LmPGI), with the potential for the development of antiparasitic drugs. A fluorescence-based high-throughput screening (HTS) assay was developed by coupling the activities of recombinant LmPGI with glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase and diaphorase. This coupled assay was used to screen 42,720 compounds from ChemBridge and TimTec commercial libraries. After confirmatory assays, selected LmPGI inhibitors were tested against homologous Trypanosoma cruzi and humans. The PGI hits are effective against trypanosomatid PGIs, with IC50 values in the micromolar range, and also against the human homologous enzyme. A computational analysis of cavities present on PGI's crystallographic structure suggests a potential binding site for the proposed mixed-type inhibition mechanism. (AU)
