- PubMed Abstract:
Herein we report the 2-aminophenol-4-sulfonamide 1 and its ureido derivatives 2-23 as inhibitors of the carbonic anhydrase (CA, EC 22.214.171.124) enzymes as analogues of the hypoxic tumor phase II entering drug SLC-0111. This scaffold may determine preferential rotational isomers to selectively interact within the tumor-associated CAs. Most of the compounds indeed showed in vitro selective inhibition of the tumor associated CA isoforms IX and XII. The most potent derivative within the series was 11 ( K I s of 2.59 and 7.64 nM on hCA IX and XII, respectively), which shares the 4-fluorophenylureido tail with the clinical candidate. We investigated by means of X-ray crystallographic studies the binding modes of three selected compounds of this series to CA I. The evaluation of therapeutic efficacy of compound 11 in an orthotopic, syngeneic model of CA IX-positive breast cancer in vivo showed close matching antitumoral effects and tolerance with SLC-0111.
