Conformationally restricted 3-anilino-4-(3-indolyl)maleimide derivatives were designed and synthesized aiming at discovery of novel protein kinase Cbeta (PKCbeta)-selective inhibitors possessing oral bioavailability. Among them, compounds having a fused five-membered ring at the indole 1,2-position inhibited PKCbeta2 with IC50 of nM-order and showed good(More)
The discovery and optimization of a series of acyl CoA:diacylglycerol acyltransferase 1 (DGAT1) inhibitors based on a pyrimido[4,5-b][1,4]oxazine scaffold is described. The SAR of a moderately potent HTS hit was investigated resulting in the discovery of phenylcyclohexylacetic acid 1, which displayed good DGAT1 inhibitory activity, selectivity, and PK(More)
We report herein synthesis of PKCbeta-selective inhibitors possessing the novel pharmacophore of anilino-monoindolylmaleimide. Several compounds of this series exhibited IC50's as low as 50 nM against human PKCbeta2. One of the most potent compounds, 6l, inhibited PKCbeta1 and PKCbeta2 with IC50 of 21 and 5 nM, respectively, and exhibited selectivity of(More)
A new structural class of DGAT1 inhibitors was discovered and the structure-activity relationship was explored. The pyrrolotriazine core of the original lead molecule was changed to a pyrrolopyridazine core providing an increase in potency. Further exploration resulted in optimization of the propyl group at C7 and the discovery that the ester at C6 could be(More)
