Design of substrate-based inhibitors of human beta-secretase.


By use of the effectively cleaved beta-secretase (BACE) substrate (1), incorporation of a statine in P(1) resulted in a weak inhibitor 13 of the enzyme. Further substitution of P(1)'-Asp by P(1)'-Val in 13 results in a potent inhibitor 22 of BACE. Removal of the P(10)-P(5) residues on the N-terminal part of inhibitor 22 resulted in no loss of potency (23). C-terminal truncations of inhibitor 22 generally led to significant loss of potency.
