Recent efforts to identify treatments for myocardial ischemia reperfusion injury have resulted in the discovery of a novel series of highly potent α,α-disubstituted amino acid-based arginase inhibitors. The lead candidate, (R)-2-amino-6-borono-2-(2-(piperidin-1-yl)ethyl)hexanoic acid, compound 9, inhibits human arginases I and II with IC50s of 223 and 509(More)
The Ugi reaction has been successfully applied to the synthesis of novel arginase inhibitors. In an effort to decrease conformational flexibility of the previously reported series of 2-amino-6-boronohexanoic acid (ABH) analogs 1, we designed and synthesized a series of compounds, 2, in which a piperidine ring is linked directly to a quaternary amino acid(More)
Substitution at the alpha center of the known human arginase inhibitor 2-amino-6-boronohexanoic acid (ABH) is acceptable in the active site pockets of both human arginase I and arginase II. In particular, substituents with a tertiary amine linked via a two carbon chain show improved inhibitory potency for both enzyme isoforms. This potency improvement can(More)
Lead compounds with the potential to progress to viable drug candidates have been identified from libraries using several strategies. These include rapid screening of large diverse collections, thematic libraries, project-directed libraries, and three-dimensional molecular models of corporate databases. There have been numerous success stories, including(More)
4-Aryl-5-pyrimidyl-based cytokine synthesis inhibitors of TNF-alpha production, which contain a novel bicyclic pyrazole heterocyclic core, are described. Many of these inhibitors showed low nanomolar activity against LPS-induced TNF-alpha production in a THP-1 cell-based assay and against human p38 alpha MAP kinase in an isolated enzyme assay. The X-ray(More)
Many lead compounds with the potential to progress to viable drug candidates have been identified from libraries during the past two years. There are two key strategies most often employed to find leads from libraries: first, high-throughput biological screening of corporate compound collections; and second, synthesis and screening of project-directed(More)
This communication details the synthesis, biological activity, and binding mode of a novel class of 2-benzimidazole substituted pyrimidines. The most potent analogs disclosed showed low nanomolar activity for the inhibition of Lck kinase and a representative analog was co-crystallized with Hck (a structurally related member of the Src family kinases).
A new class of lymphocyte specific tyrosine kinase (lck) inhibitors based on an N-4,6-pyrimidine-N-alkyl-N'-phenyl urea scaffold is described. Many of these compounds showed low-nanomolar inhibition of lck kinase activity as well as IL-2 synthesis from Jurkat cells. One of these analogs, 7i, was shown to be orally efficacious by in vivo testing in a rat(More)
A new class of tumor necrosis factor alpha (TNF-alpha) synthesis inhibitors based on an N-2,4-pyrimidine-N-phenyl-N'-phenyl urea scaffold is described. Many of these compounds showed low-nanomolar activity against lipopolysaccharide stimulated TNF-alpha production. X-ray co-crystallization studies with mutated p38alpha showed that these trisubstituted ureas(More)
