The review describes approaches to designing chromogenic and fluorogenic substrates for proteolytic enzymes, mainly for assay of serine proteinases. Principles of substrate polypeptide chain construction and some methods for detection of chromogenic and fluorogenic products of their hydrolysis are considered. The use of these substrates for the study of(More)
Thrombin purification is conducted by biospecific chromatography on gramicidin C-silochrome C 80. Preparations possessing the fibrinogen-coagulating activity of 2500-3200 NIH units per 1 mg of protein and containing 98% of active sites are obtained. Data obtained from electrophoresis in PAAG with the presence of DS-Na show the alpha-thrombin content to be(More)
A series of novel non-peptidic furin inhibitors containing amidinohydrazone moieties has been synthesized under interaction of dialdehydes, the derivatives of ethylene diethylvanillin ethers, with aminoguanidine bicarbonate. Two aryl cycles were bridged by 1,2-ethylene-, 1,4-buthylene- or 1,4-dimethylenebenzene-group. The compounds have been found to(More)
A series of 5-amino-1H-pyrazoles was synthesized and studied as inhibitors of furin. The most potent compound, 5-amino-4-acetylamino-3-(4-methylphenylamino)1H-pyrazole, was found to retard the activity of furin by mixed-type inhibition with K = 288 microM. These findings permit to plan new ways for chemical modifications of the 5-amino-1H-pyrazole structure(More)
This review is devoted to structure and properties of proprotein convertases (PCs), the intracellular Ca(2+)-dependent serine endoproteases of mammalia, that play the essential role in the processing of inactive protein precursors and their transforming into bioactive mature products. PCs are also implicated in development of a great variety of diseases(More)
Furin, a human subtilisin-related proprotein convertase, is the most important pharmaceutical target because it plays a vital role in development of numerous disease processes. To identify a new class of small non-peptide inhibitors of furin we performed a study of several flavonoids and some natural products. Glycosylated flavonoids: rutin, naringin,(More)
The presented work allows one to speculate that the hydrophobic contacts of the residues located at the P2 and P3 positions with the corresponding subsites of thrombin (S2 and S3) allow the synthesis of compounds that can react with thrombin specifically and probably may not interact with other trypsin-like serine proteases. Substitution of proline by(More)
The coupling of N-succinimide esters of 3-[7-hydroxy-3-(4-methyl-1,3-thiazol-2-yl)-6-ethyl-4-oxo-4H-chromen-2-yl]propanoic acid and 5-carboxymethyl-6-azauracil with free arginine yielded the corresponding arginine derivatives, which were purified by crystallization. The structures of the compounds were confirmed by 1H NMR spectroscopy
A series of novel non-peptidicfurin inhibitors with values of inhibitory constants (Ki) in the range of 0.74-1.54 μM was obtained by interactions of aminoguanidine hydrocarbonate with three diaryldicarbalde- hydes. Correspondingly p-hydroquinone, piperazine and adipic acid were used as linkers between their ben- zene moieties. Docking studies of these new(More)
