Abstract: The ATPase subunit of DNA gyrase B is an attractive antibacterial target due to high conservation across bacteria and the essential role it plays in DNA replication. A novel class of pyrazolopyridone inhibitors was discovered by optimizing a fragment screening hit scaffold using structure guided design. These inhibitors show potent Gram-positive antibacterial activity and low resistance incidence against clinically important pathogens
