Potential inhibitors of L-asparagine biosynthesis. 4. Substituted sulfonamide and sulfonylhydrazide analogues of L-asparagine.


Several N-substituted sulfonamides and N'-substituted sulfonylhydrazides have been prepared as sulfur analogues of L-asparagine with the potential of acting as inhibitors of L-asparagine synthetase (ASase, from Novikoff hepatoma). L-Cysteine was converted in known steps to N-carboxy-3-(sulfonylchloro)-L-alanine dibenzyl ester (1). Condensation of 1 with O… (More)
