The calcium-sensing receptor (CaSR) is a clinical target in the treatment of hyperparathyroidism and related diseases. However, clinical use of approved CaSR-targeting drugs such as cinacalcet ( 1 ) is limited due to adverse side effects including hypocalcaemia, nausea and vomiting, and in some instances, a lack of efficacy. The CaSR agonist and positive allosteric modulator (ago-PAM), AC265347 ( 2 ), is chemically distinct from clinically-approved CaSR PAMs. AC265347 potently suppressed parathy...

The N-(anilinoethyl)amide derivative UCM765, is an MT 2 -selective partial agonist with hypnotic, analgesic and anxiolytic properties in rodents, but suffers from low water solubility and modest metabolic stability. To overcome these limitations, different strategies were investigated, including modification of metabolically liable sites, introduction of hydrophilic substituents and design of more basic derivatives. Thermodynamic solubility, microsomal stability and lipophilicity of new compound...

We report investigations on the anticancer activity of organometallic [M II/III (η 6 - p -cymene/η 5 -pentamethylcyclopentadienyl)] (M = Ru, Os, Rh, and Ir) complexes of N -heterocyclic carbenes (NHCs) substituted with a triazolyl moiety. Depending on the precursors, the NHC ligands displayed either mono- or bidentate coordination via the NHC carbon atom or as N , C -donors. The metal complexes were investigated for their stability in aqueous solution, with the interpretation supported by densit...

FabF (3-oxoacyl-[acyl-carrier-protein] synthase 2), which catalyses the rate limiting condensation reaction in the fatty acid synthesis II pathway, is an attractive target for new antibiotics. Here, we focus on FabF from P. aeruginosa ( Pa FabF) as antibiotics against this pathogen are urgently needed. To facilitate exploration of this target we have set up an experimental toolbox consisting of binding assays using bio-layer interferometry as well as saturation transfer difference (STD) and Wate...

Diversity-oriented synthesis (DOS) is a rich source for novel lead structures in Medicinal Chemistry. In this study, we present a DOS-compatible method for synthesis of compounds bearing a free thiol moiety. The procedure relies on Rh(II)-catalyzed coupling of dithiols to diazo building blocks. The synthetizes library was probed against metallo-β-lactamases (MBLs) NDM-1 and VIM-1. Biochemical and biological evaluation led to identification of novel potent MBL inhibitors with antibiotic adjuvant ...

The rise of antimicrobial resistance has necessitated novel strategies to efficiently combat pathogenic bacteria. Metal-based compounds have been proven as a possible alternative to classical organic drugs. Here, we have assessed the antibacterial activity of seven gold complexes of different families. One compound, a cyclometalated Au(III) C^N complex, showed activity against Gram-positive bacteria, including multi-drug resistant clinical strains. The mechanism of action of this compound was st...

A straight-forward screening of a compound library comprising 2439 substances for the identification of new inhibitors for the neurotransmitter transporters GlyT1 and GlyT2 is described. Screening and full-scale competition experiments were performed using recently developed GlyT1 and GlyT2 MS Binding Assays. That way for both targets, GlyT1 and GlyT2, ligands were identified, which exhibited affinities (pKi values) in the low micromolar to sub-micromolar range. The majority of these binders exh...

Antibiotic resistance breakers, such as efflux pump inhibitors (EPIs), represent a powerful alternative to the development of new antimicrobials. Recently, by using previously described EPIs, we developed pharmacophore models able to identify inhibitors of NorA, the most studied efflux pump of the Staphylococcus aureus. Herein, we reported a pharmacophore-based virtual screening of a library of new potential NorA EPIs generated by an in-silico scaffold hopping approach of the quinoline core. Aft...

Methyllysine reader proteins bind to methylated lysine residues and alter gene transcription by changing the compaction state of chromatin or by the recruitment of other multiprotein complexes. The polycomb paralog family of methyllysine readers bind to trimethylated lysine on the tail of histone 3 via a highly conserved aromatic cage located in their chromodomains. Each of the polycomb paralogs are implicated in several disease states. CBX6 and CBX8 are members of the polycomb paralog family wi...

hIDO1 is a heme-dioxygenase enzyme, over-expressed in the tumor micro-environment and implicated in the survival of cancer cells. Metabolism of tryptophan to N -formyl-kynurenine by hIDO1 leads to immune suppression to result in cancer cell immune escape. In this article, we discuss the discovery of selective hIDO1 inhibitors for therapeutic intervention, which was promoted to clinical trials and associated with the complex crystal structure of the enzyme with the respective inhibitor. The struc...
