Simplified YM-26734 inhibitors of secreted phospholipase A2 group IIA

Simplified analogs of YM-26734, a known inhibitor of secreted phospholipase A(2) (sPLA(2)) group IIA, were synthesized and found to also display potent inhibition at low nanomolar concentrations. Analogs were based on the didodecanoylphloroglucinol …

Highly specific and broadly potent inhibitors of mammalian secreted phospholipases A2

We report a series of inhibitors of secreted phospholipases A2 (sPLA2s) based on substituted indoles, 6,7-benzoindoles, and indolizines derived from LY315920, a well-known indole-based sPLA2 inhibitor. Using the human group X sPLA2 crystal structure, …
