Design, Synthesis and Preliminary Activity Evaluation of Novel L-Lysine Derivatives as Aminopeptidase N/CD13 Inhibitors
Abstract:A novel class of L-lysine derivatives as aminopeptidase N (APN) inhibitors was designed and synthesized. Activity evaluation showed that compound C7 (IC50 = 9.6 ± 1.3 μM) and C20 (IC50 = 13.6 ± 1.9 μM) were equivalent to the positive control Bestatin (IC50 = 11.3 ± 1.6 μM).

- Protein & Peptide Letters publishes short papers in all important aspects of protein and peptide research, including structural studies, recombinant expression, function, synthesis, enzymology, immunology, molecular modeling, drug design etc. Manuscripts must have a significant element of novelty, timeliness and urgency that merit rapid publication. Reports of crystallisation, and preliminary structure determinations of biologically important proteins are acceptable. Purely theoretical papers are also acceptable provided they provide new insight into the principles of protein/peptide structure and function.
