Imidazole-based compounds were evaluated as inhibitors of heme oxygenase-1 (HO-1); most of tested compounds were good inhibitors with IC50 values in the low micromolar range. The binding of the most active compound 11 with heme-conjugated hHO-1 was also examined by spectral analyses; compound 11 was able to form a heme-compound 11 complex at low micromolar concentrations. Docking studies and pharmacophore analysis were performed to obtain informations on the binding mode; results were in agreement with experimental inhibition data.
