Aldose reductase (ALR2) is an enzyme involved in the development of long-term diabetic complications. In the search for aldose reductase inhibitors less acidic than carboxylic acids, phenolic compounds related to benzopyran-4-one and chalcone are particularly interesting because they possess good inhibitory properties. In order to investigate the similarities between these two classes of compounds and to provide a structural basis for their inhibition of ALR2, the existing structure-activity… CONTINUE READING
