3N0N: Crystal structure of human carbonic anhydrase II in complex with a benzenesulfonamide inhibitor
Selective hydrophobic pocket binding observed within the carbonic anhydrase II active site accommodate different 4-substituted-ureido-benzenesulfonamides and correlate to inhibitor potency
Chem. Commun. (Camb. ) (2010) 46 p.8371-8373
4-Substituted-ureido benzenesulfonamides showing inhibitory activity against carbonic anhydrase (CA, EC 22.214.171.124) II between 3.3-226 nM were crystallized in complex with the enzyme. Hydrophobic interactions between the scaffold of the inhibitors in different hydrophobic pockets of the enzyme were observed, explaining the diverse inhibitory range of these derivatives.
