Three novel series of s-triazine derivatives, including thirty-five new compounds 2a-d, 3a-3p, 4b-d, 5b-d, 6d-6d, and 7a-7f were synthesized comprising a diversity of substituents based on the structure of Astrazeneca arylaminotriazine DNA gyrase B inhibitor. The antimicrobial activity was determined for all compounds against Staphylococcus aureus, Escherichia coli and Candida albicans using the two-fold serial dilution technique and against reference standards Ampicillin for the antibacterial screening and Clotrimazole regarding the antifungal evaluation. The tested compounds showed strong to moderate antibacterial inhibitory action and weak antifungal activity. Compounds 3j and 6b were the most potent antibacterial agents against the tested strains and multi-drug resistant (MDR) clinical isolates of Klebsiella pneumoniae and methicillin resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA1) with minimal toxicity in comparison to the reference drugs. In silico molecular properties calculations and molecular docking study for 3j and 6b revealed that both compounds could be considered as promising antibacterial DNA gyrase B inhibitors.
