In this chapter we will discuss the application of chemical probes for competitive profiling of inhibitors of the quinolone biosynthesis enzyme PqsD of Pseudomonas aeruginosa. The human pathogen P. aeruginosa produces a large diversity of 2-alkyl-4(1H)-quinolones and their derivatives as metabolites with major roles in quorum sensing, virulence, and interspecies competition. PqsD is a central enzyme in the biosynthesis of all of these quinolones and hence an interesting target for inhibitor discovery. Activity-based probes with an electrophilic warhead bind covalently to active site nucleophiles like cysteine or serine. An α-chloroacetamide probe with terminal alkyne tag allowed to selectively label the active site cysteine of PqsD and was demonstrated to be a useful tool for inhibitor discovery using competition experiments. Potent inhibitors bind to the active site and thereby prevent labeling of the enzyme by the probe. Labeling intensity is quantified on polyacrylamide gels by the fluorescence of a reporter tag appended by bioorthogonal click chemistry. The competitive inhibitor profiling strategy has many advantages over traditional screening approaches and is applicable in vitro as well as in live cells. Here we describe the synthesis of an activity-based probe and provide our detailed protocols for target enzyme labeling as well as its application for the screening for potent enzyme inhibitors of PqsD by a competitive profiling strategy.</dcterms:abstract> <dcterms:title>Competitive profiling for enzyme inhibitors using chemical probes</dcterms:title> <dcterms:available rdf:datatype="">2020-09-02T06:56:35Z</dcterms:available> <dcterms:isPartOf rdf:resource=""/> <dcterms:issued>2020</dcterms:issued> <dc:language>eng</dc:language> <bibo:uri rdf:resource=""/> <dcterms:isPartOf rdf:resource=""/> <dc:date rdf:datatype="">2020-09-02T06:56:35Z</dc:date> <dspace:isPartOfCollection rdf:resource=""/> <dc:creator>Böttcher, Thomas</dc:creator> <dc:contributor>Böttcher, Thomas</dc:contributor> <void:sparqlEndpoint rdf:resource="http://localhost/fuseki/dspace/sparql"/> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
