Angiotensin converting enzyme inhibitors. (Mercaptoaroyl)amino acids.


A series of (mercaptoaroyl)amino acids and related compounds was synthesized and tested for ability to inhibit angiotensin converting enzyme (ACE). The most active compound was N-(3-chloro-2-mercaptobenzoyl)-N-cyclopentylglycine, having an in vitro I50 = 0.28 microM. Substitution of the aromatic 3-position by small polar groups enhanced ACE inhibitory… (More)
