Running cofactor interference: In vitro assays with West Nile virus (WNV) NS2B–NS3 protease resulted in the discovery of 9,10-dihydro-3H,4aH-1,3,9,10a-tetraazaphenanthren-4-ones as a new class of inhibitors of this enzyme. Optimization of the lead compound led to an uncompetitive WNV NS2B–NS3 inhibitor with an IC50 value of 5.41±0.45 μM.
