2-mercaptobenzimidazole, Alkylation, Amidation, Acyl formation
Benzimidazole is an important pharmacophore and a privileged structure in medicinal chemistry, is a heterocyclic aromatic organic compound (Figure 1) . Benzimidazole is bicyclic in nature which consists of the fusion of benzene and imidazole . Derivatives of benzimidazole were synthesized with the substitution of Fluorine, Propylene, tetrahydroquinoline which lead to compounds with increased stability, bioavailability and significant biological activity .
Benzimidazole containing compounds have different medical and biological activities, such as antitumor, antibacterial, antifungal, antiviral, anticonvulsant, antidepressant analgesic, anti-inflammatory, antidiabetic properties [4-11]. Almost all benzimidazole derivatives with their two ring systems afford different functional substituents and this leads to essential modification of the metabolic and pharmacokinetic properties physico-chemical, of these drugs. In the past few decades, benzimidazole and its derivatives have received much attention because of their chemotherapeutic values, Antioxidant Activity Oxygen-derived, Antimicrobial and Antibacterial Activity Benzimidazole shows their antibacterial activity by inhibiting the bacterial nucleic acid and proteins synthesis . Benzimidazole and imidazole drugs have wide range in remedying different dispositions in clinical medicine . Imidazole nucleus forms the main structure of some well-known components of human body, that is, the amino acid histidine, Vit-B12, a component of DNA base structure and purines, histamine, and biotin . There are drugs of Imidazole have a broader scope in treatment of different dispositions in clinical medicine . It is also present in the structure of many natural or synthetic drugs molecules. 2-mercaptobenzimidazole derivatives, one of the most important derivatives of benzimidazole exhibited a wide variety of interesting biological activities such as antimicrobial, antihistamine, neutropic, and analgesic activities [15-18].
2-Mercaptobenzimidazole derived from benzimidazole with thiol group in the 2-position (Figure 2). It possesses other chemical names such as, o-phenylen thiourea, benzimidazol-2-thion with formula of C7H6N2S . Some characteristic of 2-mercaptobenzimid- azole are containing of thioamide group (-N-C=S), therefore it is considered one of thioamide compounds for its ability to react under special condition to give derivatives having substituent at either nitrogen or sulfur atoms, 2-mercaptobenzimidiazole possess the form dimer, because it has (C=S) group, this preferable product is the dimer, it is known to exist in two tautomerism forms, the thiol and thion from as represented below [20, 21].
In reviewing most of antimicrobial drugs or possible investigated antimicrobial agent we envision the addition of groups that changes the nature of the thiol group in 2-mercapto benzimidazole. Thiol conversion in to various derivatives reflex new compounds with different interaction with the site of action. Cyclic amine may exist in different conformation that generates different activity. The hydrocarbons (ethyl, methyl, isobutyl) represent various in lipophilicity. COOH (R) hydrophilic in nature and could be converted in to various derivatives. Unique changes in groups are expected to generate effective antibacterial and antifungal agent.

Melting point was determined on Melting Point Apparatus (GallenKamp, Germany). The structures of the synthesized compounds were confirmed by Differential Scanning Calorimetry (DSC) (Mettler Toledo, USA), Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) 300 MHZ (Varian 300 MHZ, Bruker, USA), elemental analysis was performed for C, H, N using Euro EA elemental analyzer, the results obtained had a maximum deviation of (± 0.4) from the theoretical value, which is considered within the acceptable variation range in results (± 4%) (Euro Vector, Italy). This variation range is set according to the accuracy of Euro EA elemental analyzer device. FT-IR (Perkin Elmer 7600 Germany), Infra-Red (IR). DSC thermogram measurement was carried out by using the DSC 1 stare system v.11.ox. ChemBioDraw (Massachusetts, U.S.A) was used in the drawing of our schemes.
The Dihydrofolate Reductase (DHFR) protein target was selected from RCSB databank. The DHFR complex with inhibitor with PDB id 3GHW was downloaded for study. The NDPH is an important cofactor in DHFR activity. Thus the enzyme complex with NADPH was extracted. The complex was then used for minimizing the structure. The GROMACS, Linux based software was used for DHFR and NADPH complex minimization. The DHFR and NADPH complex was used as a docking target enzyme. The ligand structure was constructed using ChemDraw 2D. Then it was used to get three-dimensional structures of ligand using Chem3D. Also the ligand was energy minimized using MM2 force field present in Chem3D. Then, ligands and enzyme were prepared for docking using AutoDock Tools. The grid for docking was prepared using the inhibitor site and used it as a template. The Lamarkin GA was used to perform the docking. The docking was performed for 10 conformations and done used using AutoDock 4.2. The results were then analyzed using PyMOL and Chimera visualization software.

Evaluation of Antimicrobial Activity
The antimicrobial activity of the newly synthesized compounds of different derivatives of 2-mercaptobenzimidazole (ZR1-ZR8) were evaluated by agar diffusion method against Gram-positive bacteria, Gram-negative bacteria and fungi, using S. aureus (ATCC 6538), E. coli (ATCC 8739), P. aeruginosa (ATCC 9027), B. subtilis (ATCC 6633), and C. albicans (ATCC 10231). Mueller Hinton agar or Sabourauds dextrose agar was used in a petri dish and overwhelm its surface with 0.1 ml (1 × 106 CFU/ml) inoculum of the required microorganism, Mueller Hinton agar is used for bacteria, while Sabourauds dextrose agar for fungi . Then wells were cut and filled with 0.2 ml of the synthesized compounds (ZR1-ZR8) in concentrations of 500 μg/ml. The plates were left at room temperature for 30 min, and then the plates were incubated at 37°C for 24 h for bacteria, and at 25°C for 48 h for fungi. The zone of inhibition was determined by measuring the diameter of the zone formed around each wells and the results were compared with a positive control (100 μg/ml ciprofloxacin and trimethoprim 200 μg/ml dissolved in DMSO for bacteria, 500 μg/ml miconazole dissolved in DMSO for fungi), and negative control (DMSO alone) was included also .
The Minimum Inhibitory Concentration (MIC) against both bacteria and fungi and the Minimum Bactericidal or Fungicidal Concentration (MBC/MFC) was determined by microplate broth dilution technique. Briefly, MIC, MBC
or MFC were determined by the broth twofold micro dilution method in Mueller Hinton broth or Sabourauds dextrose broth, according to a modification of the procedure reported by NCCLS, 2012 . Compounds (ZR-1 to ZR-8) were dissolved in DMSO (1 ml) to obtain concentration of 500 μg/ml as stock solutions. The serial dilution method was used to obtain (250 to 0.488) μg/ml concentrations. Mueller-Hinton broth was used as medium for bacterial growth, 100 μl of each concentration were distributed in 96-well plates with the exception of those wells acting as growth control (contain microorganisms and culture media) and positive control (contain microorganisms and standard control antibiotic), 20 μl of the standard microorganism’s inoculum (equivalent to 1 × 106 CFU) were added to each well except the negative control well, the microplates were covered and sealed with parafilm and incubated at 37°C for 18-24 h for bacteria and at 25°C for 28 h for fungi. Resazorin indicator solution in 50 μl was added to each well, the microplates were incubated as mentioned before for 30 min and reported, violet color of the contain of the well indicated no bacterial growth, if the color change to pink it indicated microbial growth.
To determine the MBC or MFC, a loop full with 10 μl was removed from the MIC dilution well and from the preceding dilutions, from the negative and positive control wells, all of them were inoculated into MHA or SDA plates and incubated at 37°C for bacteria or 25°C for fungi for 24 h or 48 h respectively, the lower concentration which gave no growth was the required MBC or MFC, and were compared to the MBC or MFC of the positive antimicrobial control [25,26]. All determinations were carried out in triplicate.
The analysis was carried by using the statistical packages for social science SPSS version 21 for student’s t-test. Values are presented as mean ± SD.
