Resumo

The search for new antibacterial agents and a better comprehension of substances with antimicrobial behavior is mandatory nowadays due to the serious public health problem of infection diseases. In the present work, 30 diterpenes were studied, with 2 natural derivatives, named ent-16-kauren-19-oic acid and ent-pimara-8(14), 15-dien-19-oic acid, and 28 semisynthetic derivatives. The natural diterpenes were isolated from Mikania glomerata and Viguiera arenaria, respectively. All diterpenes were submitted to antimicrobial assays against six different Gram-positive microorganisms to better understand the structure-activity relationship of antimicrobial diterpenes. The semi-synthetic derivatives were all obtained from the two natural derivatives by structural modifications, mainly esterification reactions. Both natural derivatives, together with the derivative ent-8(14)-pimaren-19-oic acid, displayed the most relevant antibacterial activities, with minimal inhibitory concentration (MIC) values that were less than 10 mu g mL(-1) for most pathogens; thus, they were considered promising antimicrobial agents. Moreover, in light of the hypothesis of Urzua and colleagues, several considerations about the structure-activity relationship of antimicrobial diterpenes could be stated. (AU)
