Inhibitors of dipeptidyl peptidase-4 (DPP4) have been shown to be effective treatments for type 2 diabetes. Several series of β-amino amide containing piperazine derivatives have been prepared and evaluated as a inhibitor of DPP4. Finally compound 5m was selected for further evaluation.
AIM To characterize the pharmacodynamic profile of DA-1229, a novel dipeptidyl peptidase (DPP) 4 inhibitor. MAIN METHODS Enzyme inhibition assays against DPP4, DPP8 and DPP9. Antidiabetic effects of DA-1229 in HF-DIO mice and young db/db mice. KEY FINDINGS DA-1229 was shown to potently inhibit the DPP4 enzyme in human and murine soluble forms and the(More)
Excessive calpain activations contribute to serious cellular damage and have been found in many pathological conditions. Novel chromone carboxamides derived from ketoamides were prepared and evaluated for mu-calpain inhibition. Among synthesized, compound 2i was the most potent calpain inhibitor with an IC(50) value of 0.24 +/- 0.11 microM comparable to the(More)
The Ca(2+)-independent phospholipase A(2) (iPLA(2)) subfamily of enzymes is associated with arachidonic acid (AA) release and the subsequent increase in fatty acid turnover. This phenomenon occurs not only during apoptosis but also during inflammation and lymphocyte proliferation. In this study, we purified and characterized a novel type of iPLA(2) from(More)
Evogliptin ((R)-4-((R)-3-amino-4-(2,4,5-trifluorophenyl)butanoyl)-3-(tert-butoxymethyl) piperazine-2-one)) is a highly potent selective inhibitor of dipeptidyl peptidase IV (DPP4) that was approved for the treatment of type 2 diabetes in South Korea. In this study, we report the crystal structures of Evogliptin, DA-12166, and DA-12228 (S,R diastereomer of(More)
A series of β-amino amide containing substituted piperazine-2-one derivatives was synthesized and evaluated as inhibitors of dipeptidyl pepdidase-4 (DPP-4) for the treatment of type 2 diabetes. As results of intensive SAR study of the series, (R)-4-[(R)-3-amino-4-(2,4,5-trifluorophenyl)-butanoyl]-3-(t-butoxymethyl)-piperazin-2-one (DA-1229) displayed potent(More)
