Novel heteroaromatic organofluorine inhibitors of fructose-1,6-bisphosphatase

A broad group of compounds including substituted pyrazoles, pyrroles, indoles, and carbazoles were screened to identify potential inhibitor lead compounds of fructose-1,6-bisphosphatase (FBPase). Best inhibitors are (1H-indol-1-yl)(4-(trifluoromethyl)phenyl)methanone, ethyl 3-(3,5-dimethyl-1H-pyrrol-2-yl)-4,4,4-trifluoro-3-hydroxybutanoate, 3,5-diphenyl-1-(3-(trifluoromethyl) phenyl)-1H-pyrazole, and ethyl 3,3,3-trifluoro-2-hydroxy-2-(1-methyl-1H-indol-3-yl)propanoate. The IC50values (3.1, 4.8, 6.1, and 11.9 µM) were comparable to that of AMP, the natural inhibitor of murine FBPase (IC50 […]
