Synthesis, biological evaluation, and molecular modeling studies of methylene imidazole substituted biaryls as inhibitors of human 17alpha-hydroxylase-17,20-lyase (CYP17)--part II: Core rigidification and influence of substituents at the methylene bridge.


Thirty-five novel substituted imidazolyl methylene biphenyls have been synthesized as CYP17 inhibitors for the potential treatment of prostate cancer. Their activities have been tested with recombinant human CYP17 expressed in Escherichia coli. Promising compounds were tested for selectivity against CYP11B1, CYP11B2, and hepatic CYP enzymes 3A4, 1A2, 2B6… (More)
