Comparative study of ortho- and meta-nitrated inhibitors of catechol-O-methyltransferase: interactions with the active site and regioselectivity of O-methylation.


In this work, we present a comparative case study of "ortho-" and "meta-nitrated" catecholic inhibitors of catechol-O-methyltransferase (COMT), with regard to their interaction with the catalytic site of the enzyme and the in vitro regioselective formation of their mono-O-methyl ether metabolites. In particular, the effects of altering the attachment… (More)
