Novel analogues of Istaroxime, a potent inhibitor of Na(+),K(+)-ATPase: Synthesis, structure-activity relationship and 3D-quantitative structure-activity relationship of derivatives at position 6 on the androstane scaffold

We report the synthesis and biological properties of novel analogues of Istaroxime acting as positive inotropic compounds through the inhibition of the Na(+),K(+)-ATPase. We explored the chemical space around the position 6 of the steroidalscaffold by changing the functional groups at that position and maintaining a basic oximic chain in position 3.
