Synthesis and evaluation of novel dipeptidyl benzoyloxymethyl ketones as caspase inhibitors.


We describe novel peptide-based caspase inhibitors. Potent and comparatively selective compounds containing a dipeptide scaffold and a substituted oxymethyl ketone as a warhead were developed. The newly synthesized compounds were tested for inhibition in in vitro enzymatic assays of caspases-1, -3, -6, -8, and -9. The benzyloxycarbonyl-phenylglycyl-aspartyl… (More)
