We describe the rationale for and the synthesis of a new class of compounds utilizing a modular approach that are designed to mimic ascorbic acid and to inhibit 2-oxoglutarate-dependent hydroxylases. Preliminary characterization of one of these compounds indicates in vivo anticonvulsant activity (6 Hz mouse model) at nontoxic doses, inhibition of the 2-oxoglutarate-dependent hydroxylase FTO, and expected increase in cellular N(6)-methyladenosine. This compound is also able to modulate various… CONTINUE READING
