Diabetes mellitus (DM) represents a complex and multifactorial disease that causes metabolic disorders with acute and long-term serious complications. The onset of DM, with over 90% of cases of diabetes classified as type 2, implies several metabolic dysfunctions leading to consider DM a worldwide health problem. In this frame, protein tyrosine phosphatase 1B (PTP1B) and aldose reductase (AR) are two emerging targets involved in the development of type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) and its chronic complications. Herein, we employed a marine-derived dual type inhibitor of these enzymes, phosphoeleganin, as chemical starting point to perform a fragment-based process in search for new inhibitors. Phosphoeleganin was both disassembled by its oxidative cleavage and used as model structure for the synthesis of a small library of functionalized derivatives as rationally designed analogues. Pharmacological screening supported by in silico docking analysis outlined the mechanism of action against PTP1B exerted by a phosphorylated fragment and a synthetic simplified analogue, which represent the most potent inhibitors in the library.

Abstract

Diabetes mellitus (DM) represents a complex and multifactorial disease that causes metabolic disorders with acute and long-term serious complications. The onset of DM, with over 90% of cases of diabetes classified as type 2, implies several metabolic dysfunctions leading to consider DM a worldwide health problem. In this frame, protein tyrosine phosphatase 1B (PTP1B) and aldose reductase (AR) are two emerging targets involved in the development of type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) and its chronic complications. Herein, we employed a marine-derived dual type inhibitor of these enzymes, phosphoeleganin, as chemical starting point to perform a fragment-based process in search for new inhibitors. Phosphoeleganin was both disassembled by its oxidative cleavage and used as model structure for the synthesis of a small library of functionalized derivatives as rationally designed analogues. Pharmacological screening supported by in silico docking analysis outlined the mechanism of action against PTP1B exerted by a phosphorylated fragment and a synthetic simplified analogue, which represent the most potent inhibitors in the library.
