VIP: The Emerging Picture of Sulfoximines in Drug Discovery

VIP: The Emerging Picture of Sulfoximines in Drug DiscoveryJuan Alberto Sirvent, Dr. Ulrich Lücking*

After being neglected for a long time, sulfoximines, the mono-aza analogues of sulfones, have recently gained considerable recognition as a new and versatile structural motif in the life sciences. The synthetic methodology for sulfoximines has progressed significantly over the last decade; however, the general understanding of this functional group regarding its medicinal-chemistry-relevant properties is still limited.

    Waste not, Wnt not: We identified a 1,2,3-thiadiazole-5-carboxamide chemical series in a Wnt pathway inhibition screen. We generated chemical probes to identify the targets of this series based on our efforts to optimize potency and physical properties. Using a combination of biochemical, cell biology, and chemoproteomics methods, we found two previously unreported mechanisms for this pharmacophore: uncouplers of the mitochondrial potential and Ca2+ ionophores through interaction with SERCA2.

    The bare-knuckle round in the fight against HIV: Mercapotobenzamide derivatives could become the next generation of drugs to treat HIV infection by targeting and inactivating nucleocapsid protein 7 (NCp7). This protein contains two zinc-coordinated knuckles that bind to HIV RNA and are essential for viral replication. Certain mercaptobenzamide derivatives promote the acetylation of NCp7, loss of zinc coordination, and eliminate the ability of NCp7 to bind HIV RNA. Herein we describe how to quickly make mercaptobenzamide analogues to screen for antiviral activity.
