N-1H-benzimidazol-5-ylbenzenesulfonamide Derivatives as Potent hPXR Agonists

The Human Pregnane X Receptor (hPXR) is a nuclear receptor that regulates the expression of phase I and phase II drug-metabolizing enzymes, as well as that of drug transporters. Because this receptor plays a critical role in protecting tissues from potentially toxic endo- and xenobiotics, highly active agonists could represent novel therapeutic tools in treating several human diseases.
