The discovery and SAR study of a new series of soluble and highly potent phosphodiesterase (PDE) 7 inhibitors are described herein. We explored a new lead compound with improved solubility, which led to the discovery of a 2-(4-pyridylamino)thieno[3,2-d]pyrimidin-4(3H)-one series. The introduction of 3-piperidines at the 7-position resulted in the(More)
The discovery of a new series of potent phosphodiesterase 7 (PDE7) inhibitors is described. Novel thieno[3,2-d]pyrimidin-4(3H)-one hit compounds were identified from our chemical library. Preliminary modifications of the hit compounds were performed, resulting in the discovery of a fragment-sized compound (10) with highly improved ligand efficiency.(More)
Reverse hydroxamate-based selective TACE inhibitors are described. They have potent TACE inhibitory activities and excellent selectivities against MMP-1, 2, 3, 8, 9, 13, 14, and 17. One representative compound, 18 has demonstrated an excellent oral inhibitory activity of the lipopolysaccharide (LPS)-stimulated TNF-alpha production in rats.
A total synthesis of (-)-histrionicotoxin was achieved. Our synthesis features preparation of a pseudosymmetrical dienyne through chirality transfer from an allenylsilane, a dienyne metathesis to produce the bicyclo [5.4.0] system in optically active form, selective functionalization of a diene via a 5-exo-trig iodoetherification, and an asymmetric(More)
A new series of thienopyrimidinones is synthesized and evaluated as selective phosphodiesterase 7 (PDE7) inhibitors for the treatment of inflammatory diseases. The modification of the substituents on thienopyrimidinone revealed that an isopropylamino group at the 2-position was favorable for aqueous solubility. The introduction of 3-pyrrolidines at the(More)
