UNLABELLED Hepatitis C virus (HCV) replication is highly dependent on host cell factors. Identification of these host factors not only facilitates understanding of the biology of HCV infection but also enables the discovery of novel targets for anti-HCV therapy. To identify host genes important for HCV RNA replication, we screened a library of small(More)
Dasabuvir (ABT-333) is a nonnucleoside inhibitor of the RNA-dependent RNA polymerase encoded by the hepatitis C virus (HCV) NS5B gene. Dasabuvir inhibited recombinant NS5B polymerases derived from HCV genotype 1a and 1b clinical isolates, with 50% inhibitory concentration (IC50) values between 2.2 and 10.7 nM, and was at least 7,000-fold selective for the(More)
We describe here N-phenylpyrrolidine-based inhibitors of HCV NS5A with excellent potency, metabolic stability, and pharmacokinetics. Compounds with 2S,5S stereochemistry at the pyrrolidine ring provided improved genotype 1 (GT1) potency compared to the 2R,5R analogues. Furthermore, the attachment of substituents at the 4-position of the central N-phenyl(More)
Compounds A-782759 (an N-1-aza-4-hydroxyquinolone benzothiadiazine) and BILN-2061 are specific anti-hepatitis C virus (HCV) agents that inhibit the RNA-dependent RNA polymerase and the NS3 serine protease, respectively. Both compounds display potent activity against HCV replicons in tissue culture. In order to characterize the development of resistance to(More)
The synthesis and structure-activity relationships of a novel aryl uracil series which contains a fused 5,6-bicyclic ring unit for HCV NS5B inhibition is described. Several analogs display replicon cell culture potencies in the low nanomolar range along with excellent rat pharmacokinetic values.
Described herein is the development of a potent non-nucleoside, small molecule inhibitor of genotype 1 HCV NS5B Polymerase. A 23 μM inhibitor that was active against HCV polymerase was further elaborated into a potent single-digit nanomolar inhibitor of HCV NS5B polymerase by additional manipulation of the R and R1 substituents. Subsequent modifications to(More)
Benzothiadiazine inhibitors of the HCV NS5B RNA-dependent RNA polymerase are an important class of non-nucleoside inhibitors that have received considerable attention in the search for novel HCV therapeutics. Research in our laboratories has identified a novel series of tetracyclic benzothiadiazine inhibitors of HCV polymerase bearing a benzylamino(More)
The Hepatitis C (HCV) replicon system is a useful tool for the high-volume screening of inhibitors of HCV replication. In this report, a cell-based assay has been described, which monitors the inhibition of HCV genotypes 1a and 1b as well as cytotoxicity, from a single well of a 96-well plate. A mixture of two stable replicon cell lines was used: one(More)
Hepatitis C virus (HCV) replicon-based shuttle vectors that permit phenotypes of NS5B polymerase genes from a large number of patient isolates to be rapidly assessed when transiently expressed in cultured cells were designed. When used to test responses to an inhibitor of HCV RNA-dependent RNA polymerase, IC(50) values for inhibition covered a several(More)
Research toward a next-generation HCV NS5A inhibitor has identified fluorobenzimidazole analogs that demonstrate potent, broad-genotype in vitro activity against HCV genotypes 1-6 replicons as well as HCV NS5A variants that are orders of magnitude less susceptible to inhibition by first-generation NS5A inhibitors in comparison to wild-type replicons. The(More)
