4-Functionalized 1,3-diarylpyrazoles bearing benzenesulfonamide moiety as selective potent inhibitors of the tumor associated carbonic anhydrase isoforms IX and XII.

A library of 4-functionalized 1,3-diarylpyrazoles (3a-3h, 5a-5g and 6a-6g) was designed, synthesized and evaluated against four human carbonic anhydrase (CA, EC isozymes representing two cytosolic isozymes hCA I and hCA II, and two transmembrane tumor associated ones, hCA IX and hCA XII. All the twenty two tested compounds exhibited excellent CA… (More)
