Insulin-degrading enzyme (IDE) is a protease that cleaves insulin and other bioactive peptides such as amyloid-β. Knockout and genetic studies have linked IDE to Alzheimer's disease and type-2 diabetes. As the major insulin-degrading protease, IDE is a candidate drug target in diabetes. Here we have used kinetic target-guided synthesis to design the first(More)
Insulin degrading enzyme (IDE) is a highly conserved zinc metalloprotease that is involved in the clearance of various physiologically peptides like amyloid-beta and insulin. This enzyme has been involved in the physiopathology of diabetes and Alzheimer's disease. We describe here a series of small molecules discovered by screening. Co-crystallization of(More)
Insulin degrading enzyme (IDE) is a zinc metalloprotease that degrades small amyloid peptides such as amyloid-â and insulin. So far the dearth of IDE-specific pharmacological inhibitors impacts the understanding of its role in the physiopathology of Alzheimer's disease, amyloid-â clearance, and its validation as a potential therapeutic target.
