ABSTRACT Factor Xa inhibitory activities for a series of N-{(3S)-1-[(1S)-1-methyl-2-morpholin-4-yl-2-oxoethyl]-2-oxopyrrolidin-3-yl}sulfonamides with different P1 groups are described. These data provide insight into binding interactions within the S1 primary specificity pocket; rationales are presented for the derived SAR on the basis of electronic interactions through crystal structures of fXa-ligand complexes and molecular modeling studies. A good correlation between in vitro anticoagulant activities with lipophilicity and the extent of human serum albumin binding is observed within this series of potent fXa inhibitors. Pharmacokinetic profiles in rat and dog, together with selectivity over other trypsin-like serine proteases, identified 1f as a candidate for further evaluation.

    ABSTRACT: Thromboembolic diseases are the leading causes of morbidity and mortality in the developed world. Anticoagulants provide effective treatment for venous or arterial thromboembolism. Two coagulation factors, factor Xa (fXa) and thrombin, are the primary targets under active investigation for anticoagulant therapy. fXa, in contrast to the multifunctional roles of thrombin in the coagulation cascade, converts prothrombin to thrombin collectively at the junction of the intrinsic and extrinsic pathway of coagulation. The effectiveness of fXa inhibitors as antithrombotic agents and their potentially reduced bleeding risks may offer superior therapeutic profiles with respect to thrombin inhibitors. After decades of research, many fXa inhibitors are now in the advanced stages of clinical trials. Unlike most reviews, which only provide incremental updates, this review provides an overview of fXa and the medicinal chemistry of its inhibitors. Overviews on coagulation models, antithrombotic therapy, and fXa will be provided, followed by the evolution of the medicinal chemistry of fXa inhibitors over the past few decades.

    ABSTRACT: The interactions of halogen atoms with aromatic π-systems can be crucial for structural stability and ligand binding. However, many aspects of the nature and energetics of these interactions remain elusive. Therefore, we designed model systems mimicking the T-shaped complex of chloro- and bromobenzene with tyrosine as found, e.g., in serine protease-inhibitor complexes. Three dimensional potential energy surfaces (3D-PES) were calculated at a high level of theory, up to CCSD(T). On these 3D-PES the exact location of the minima and, even more important, the shape of favorable interaction regions were determined. We show that the height of the halogen atom above the tyrosine-ring is decisive, while the lateral position is of minor influence. Finally, a truncated harmonic potential is developed to modify the Amber/GAFF force field to shift the locations of the minima to the correct regions.
