In this study, the synthesis and biological evaluation of heteroaryl-substituted dihydronaphthalenes and indenes (1-16) is described. The compounds were tested for activity by use of human CYP11B2 expressed in fission yeast and V79 MZh cells and for selectivity by use of human CYP11B1, CYP17, and CYP19. The most active inhibitor was the(More)
Recently we proposed inhibition of aldosterone synthase (CYP11B2) as a novel strategy for the treatment of congestive heart failure and myocardial fibrosis. In this study the synthesis and biological evaluation of heteroaryl-substituted naphthalenes and quinolines (1-31) is described. Key step for the preparation of the compounds was a Suzuki(More)
Recently, we proposed inhibition of aldosterone synthase (CYP11B2) as a novel strategy for the treatment of congestive heart failure and myocardial fibrosis and synthesized a large number of inhibitors. In this work, a pharmacophore model for CYP11B2 inhibitors was developed by superimposition of active and non-active compounds. This model was confirmed by(More)
The synthesis and biological evaluation of a series of amidinohydrazones (3a-h, 6a-c, 8 and 9) as potential nonsteroidal inhibitors of aldosterone synthase (CYP11B2) are described. The compounds were tested in vitro using CYP11B2-expressing fission yeast; they showed only marginal inhibitory effect. Compound 6c was evaluated for its effect on the formation(More)
