QM/MM Studies of the Matrix Metalloproteinase 2 (MMP2) Inhibition Mechanism of (S)-SB-3CT and its Oxirane Analogue.


SB-3CT, (4-phenoxyphenylsulfonyl)methylthiirane, is a potent, mechanism-based inhibitor of the gelatinase sub-class of the matrix metalloproteinase (MMP) family of zinc proteases. The gelatinase MMPs are unusual in that there are several examples where both enantiomers of a racemic inhibitor have comparable inhibitory abilities. SB-3CT is one such example… (More)
