- Aminomethylpyrimidines as novel DPP-IV inhibitors: a 10(5)-fold activity increase by optimization of aromatic substituents.
- Bioorg Med Chem Lett. 2004 Mar 22;14(6):1491-3.
- The influence of aromatic substitution on a newly discovered class of inhibitors of dipeptidyl peptidase IV was investigated. A 10(5)-fold increase in potency was achieved by the optimization of aromatic substituents in a parallel chemistry program. The observed SAR could be explained by an X-ray structure of the protein-ligand complex.
