Both 5-arylidene-2-thioxodihydropyrimidine-4,6(1H,5H)-diones and 3-thioxo-2,3-dihydro-1H-imidazo[1,5-a]indol-1-ones are light-dependent tumor necrosis factor-alpha antagonists.

Abstract

Based on the realization that N-alkyl 5-arylidene-2-thioxo-1,3-thiazolidin-4-ones are tumor necrosis factor-alpha antagonists, we discovered two additional classes of antagonists: 3-thioxo-2,3-dihydro-1H-imidazo[1,5-a]indol-1-ones (via rational design) and 5-arylidene-2-thioxodihydropyrimidine-4,6(1H,5H)-diones (via computer-guided screening). Chemical modification of the lead structures showed that the structure-activity relationship profiles for both of these series were dependent on the electronic properties of the molecules. Subsequent studies showed that they were light-dependent inhibitors.
