Discovery and optimization of adamantane carboxylic acid derivatives as potent diacylglycerol acyltransferase 1 inhibitors for the potential treatment of obesity and diabetes.


We have developed a series of adamantane carboxylic acid derivatives exhibiting potent diacylglycerol acyltransferase 1 (DGAT1) inhibitory activities. Optimization of the series led to the discovery of E-adamantane carboxylic acid compound 43c, which showed excellent in vitro activity with an IC50 value of 5 nM against human and mouse DGAT1, also good… (More)
