Synthesis and biological evaluation of oxadiazole derivatives as inhibitors of soluble guanylyl cyclase.

Soluble guanylyl cyclase (sGC) is an ubiquitously expressed enzyme that generates the second messenger cGMP and hence, leads to a number of physiological responses including vasodilation, inhibition of platelet aggregation and neurotransmission. Whilst many activating and stimulating modulators of sGC were identified and studied in recent years, only two… CONTINUE READING
