Bedaquiline is a diarylquinoline drug that demonstrates potent and selective inhibition of mycobacterial ATP synthase, and is clinically administered for the treatment of multi-drug resistant tuberculosis. Due to its excellent activity and novel mechanism of action, bedaquiline has been the focus of a number of synthetic studies. This review will discuss these synthetic approaches, as well as the synthesis and bioactivity of the numerous derivatives and molecular probes inspired by bedaquiline.
Keywords: Bedaquiline; Diarylquinolines; SAR; Stereoselective synthesis; Tuberculosis.
