Six focused rhodanine-based libraries, 60 compounds in total, were synthesized and evaluated as potential dynamin I GTPase inhibitors. Twenty-six were more potent than the lead compound with 13 returning IC50 values ≤10 μM, making the Rhodadyn series among the most active dynamin inhibitors reported. Two analogues were highly effective at blocking receptor-mediated endocytosis: C10 and D10 with IC50(RME) = 7.0 ± 2.2 and 5.9 ± 1.0 μM, respectively. These compounds are equipotent with the best reported in-cell dynamin inhibitors.
