A series of P1-P3 linked macrocyclic BACE-1 inhibitors containing a hydroxyethylamine (HEA) isostere scaffold has been synthesized. All inhibitors comprise a toluene or N-phenylmethanesulfonamide P2 moiety. Excellent BACE-1 potencies, both in enzymatic and cell-based assays, were observed in this series of target compounds, with the best candidates(More)
Novel NS3/4A protease inhibitors comprising quinazoline derivatives as P2 substituent were synthesized. High potency inhibitors displaying advantageous PK properties have been obtained through the optimization of quinazoline P2 substituents in three series exhibiting macrocyclic P2 cyclopentane dicarboxylic acid and P2 proline urea motifs. For the(More)
Highly potent and selective 4-amidofuran-3-one inhibitors of cathepsin S are described. The synthesis and structure-activity relationship of a series of inhibitors with a sulfonamide moiety in the P3 position is presented. Several members of the series show sub-nanomolar inhibition of the target enzyme as well as an excellent selectivity profile and good(More)
4'-Azido-2'-deoxy-2'-methylcytidine (14) is a potent nucleoside inhibitor of the HCV NS5B RNA-dependent RNA polymerase, displaying an EC(50) value of 1.2 μM and showing moderate in vivo bioavailability in rat (F=14%). Here we describe the synthesis and biological evaluation of 4'-azido-2'-deoxy-2'-methylcytidine and prodrug derivatives thereof.
A novel approach for separate expression of dengue virus NS3 protease and its NS2B cofactor domain is described in this paper. The two proteins are expressed in E.coli and purified separately and subsequently efficiently co-refolded to form a stable complex. This straightforward and robust method allows for separate isotope labeling of the two proteins,(More)
The DP4 parameter, which provides a confidence level for NMR assignment, has been widely used to help assign the structures of many stereochemically-rich molecules. We present an improved version of the procedure, which can be downloaded as Python script instead of running within a web-browser, and which analyses output from open-source molecular modelling(More)
Two types of P1-P3-linked macrocyclic renin inhibitors containing the hydroxyethylene isostere (HE) scaffold just outside the macrocyclic ring have been synthesized. An aromatic or aliphatic substituent (P3sp) was introduced in the macrocyclic ring aiming at the S3 subpocket (S3sp) in order to optimize the potency. A 5-6-fold improvement in both the K(i)(More)
Nuclear-associated deoxyuridine 5'-triphosphate nucleotidohydrolase (dUTPase) is an enzyme that hydrolyses deoxyuridine 5'-triphosphate (dUTP) to the monophosphate, thereby controlling the dUTP levels of the organism, which is essential for survival. Further, dUTPase is up-regulated in many cancers. Thus, dUTPase is a highly interesting potential drug(More)
Mucosa-associated lymphoid tissue lymphoma translocation protein 1 (MALT1) is a unique paracaspase protein whose protease activity mediates oncogenic NF-κB signalling in activated B cell-like diffuse large B cell lymphomas (ABC-DLBCLs). ABC-DLBCLs are aggressive lymphomas with high resistance to current chemotherapies. Low survival rate among patients(More)
A human matrix metalloproteinase (MMP) hydroxamic acid inhibitor (CGS27023A) was cross-docked into 15 MMP-12, MMP-13, MMP-9, and MMP-1 cocrystal structures. The aim was to validate a fast protocol for ligand binding conformation elucidation and to probe the feasibility of using inhibitor-protein NMR contacts to dock an inhibitor into related MMP crystal(More)
