4D8N: Human Kallikrein 6 Inhibitors with a para-Amidobenzylanmine P1 Group Carry a High Binding Efficiency
Human kallikrein 6 inhibitors with a para-amidobenzylanmine P1 group identified through virtual screening
Bioorg. Med. Chem. Lett. (2012) 22 p.2450-2455
A series of hK6 inhibitors with a para-amidobenzylamine P1 group and a 2-hydroxybenzamide scaffold linker was discovered through virtual screening. The X-ray structure of hK6 complexed with compound 9b was determined to a resolution of 1.68A. The tertiary folding of the hK6 complexed with the inhibitor is conserved relative to the structure of the apo-protein, whereas the interaction between hK6 and the inhibitor is consistent with both the SAR and the in silico model used in the virtual screening.
