Abstract: 4-(4-Hydroxyphenethyl)benzene-1,2-diol is a new inhibitor against Helicobacter Pylori urease.The inhibition mechanism was herein investigated through enzyme kinetics methods,and the results revealed that 4-(4-hydroxyphenethyl)benzene-1,2-diol was competitive inhibitor of urease with a Ki value of 1.48 μmol/L.The chemical stabilitiy and the competitive mechanism of 4-(4-hydroxyphenethyl)-benzene-1,2-diol strongly suggested that it could be used as a lead compound for rational drug design to find active compound and as a potential urease inhibitor for treatment of gastritis and peptic ulcer.

Key words: Helicobacter Pylori urease, 4-(4-hydroxyphenethyl)benzene-1,2-diol, enzyme kinetics, competitive inhibition
