The peroxisome proliferator-activated receptors (PPARs) are ligand-dependent transcription factors regulating glucose and lipid metabolism. The search for new PPAR ligands with reduced adverse effects with respect to the marketed antidiabetic agents thiazolidinediones (TZDs) and the dual-agonists glitazars is highly desired. We report the crystal structure(More)
Human neutrophil collagenase (HNC, MMP-8) is one of the target enzymes for drug treatment of pathologic extracellular matrix degradation. Peptidomimetic inhibitors bind in the S'-side of the enzyme active site occupying the S'1 primary specificity pocket by their large hydrophobic side-chains. The crystal structure of the complex between the catalytic(More)
