The development of immunoproteasome-selective inhibitors is a promising strategy for treating hematologic malignancies, autoimmune and inflammatory diseases. In this context, we report the design, synthesis, and biological evaluation of a new series of amide derivatives as immunoproteasome inhibitors. Notably, the designed compounds act as noncovalent inhibitors, which might be a promising therapeutic option because of the lack of drawbacks and side effects associated with irreversible inhibition. Among the synthesized compounds, we identified a panel of active inhibitors with Ki values in the low micromolar or sub-micromolar ranges toward the b5i and/or b1i subunits of immunoproteasomes. One of the active compounds was shown to be the most potent and selective inhibi-tor with a Ki value of 21 nm against the single b1i subunit. Docking studies allowed us to determine the mode of binding of the molecules in the catalytic site of immunoproteasome subunits.

Abstract

The development of immunoproteasome-selective inhibitors is a promising strategy for treating hematologic malignancies, autoimmune and inflammatory diseases. In this context, we report the design, synthesis, and biological evaluation of a new series of amide derivatives as immunoproteasome inhibitors. Notably, the designed compounds act as noncovalent inhibitors, which might be a promising therapeutic option because of the lack of drawbacks and side effects associated with irreversible inhibition. Among the synthesized compounds, we identified a panel of active inhibitors with Ki values in the low micromolar or sub-micromolar ranges toward the b5i and/or b1i subunits of immunoproteasomes. One of the active compounds was shown to be the most potent and selective inhibi-tor with a Ki value of 21 nm against the single b1i subunit. Docking studies allowed us to determine the mode of binding of the molecules in the catalytic site of immunoproteasome subunits.
