AbstractFour human (h) carbonic anhydrase isoforms (CA, EC 126.96.36.199), hCA I, II, IV, and VII, were investigated for their activation profile with piperazines belonging to various classes, such as N-aryl-, N-alkyl-, N-acyl-piperazines as well as 2,4-disubstituted derivatives. As the activation mechanism involves participation of the activator in the proton shuttling between the zinc-coordinated water molecule and the external milieu, these derivatives possessing diverse basicity and different scaffolds were appropriate for being investigated as CA activators (CAAs). Most of these derivatives showed CA activating properties against hCA I, II, and VII (cytosolic isoforms) but were devoid of activity against the membrane-associated hCA IV. For hCA I, the KAs were in the range of 32.6–131 µM; for hCA II of 16.2–116 µM, and for hCA VII of 17.1–131 µM. The structure-activity relationship was intricate and not easy to rationalize, but the most effective activators were 1-(2-piperidinyl)-piperazine (KA of 16.2 µM f...
