The synthesis and kinetic evaluation of aryl α-aminophosphonates as novel inhibitors of T. cruzi trans-sialidase

Abstract

The trans-sialidase protein expressed by Trypanosoma cruzi is an important enzyme in the life cycle of this human pathogenic parasite and is considered a promising target for the development of new drug treatments against Chagas' disease. Here we describe α-amino phosphonates as a novel class of inhibitor of T. cruzi trans-sialidase. Molecular modelling studies were initially used to predict the active-site binding affinities for a series of amino phosphonates, which were subsequently synthesised and their IC50s determined in vitro. The measured inhibitory activities show some correlation with the predictions from molecular modelling, with 1-napthyl derivatives found to be the most potent inhibitors having IC50s in the low micromolar range. Interestingly, kinetic analysis of the mode of inhibition demonstrated that the α-aminophosphonates tested here operate in a non-competitive manner.
