Dihydrofuro[3,4-c]pyridinones are the first class of small molecules reported to inhibit the cytolytic effects of the lymphocyte toxin perforin. A lead structure was identified from a high throughput screen, and a series of analogues were designed and prepared to explore structure-activity relationships around the core bicyclic thioxofuropyridinone and(More)
A series of novel 5-arylidene-2-thioxoimidazolidin-4-ones were investigated as inhibitors of the lymphocyte-expressed pore-forming protein perforin. Structure-activity relationships were explored through variation of an isoindolinone or 3,4-dihydroisoquinolinone subunit on a fixed 2-thioxoimidazolidin-4-one/thiophene core. The ability of the resulting(More)
The title compound, C(10)H(13)NO(3), was obtained as a by-product of the aldolization reaction of furo[3,4-c]pyridin-3(1H)-one with thio-phene-2-carboxaldehyde. The substituents on the pyridine ring are nearly coplanar, with an 8.1 (2)° rotation of the hydroxmethyl group from this plane. The mol-ecules assemble in the crystal structure as chains via O-H⋯N(More)
