We report here on a series of five chemically diverse scaffolds that have activity in vitro on both replicating and hypoxic non-replicating bacilli by targeting the respiratory bc1 complex in Mycobacterium tuberculosis, in a strain-dependent manner. Deletion of the cytochrome bd oxidase generated a hyper-susceptible mutant in which resistance was acquired by mutation in qcrB. These results highlight the promiscuity of the bc1 complex and highlight the risk of targeting energy metabolism with new drugs.
