  • Discovery of highly potent, nonsteroidal 17ß-hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase type 1 inhibitors by virtual high-throughput screening
    Starčević, Štefan ...
    17ß-Hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase type 1 (17ß-HSD1) catalyzes the formation of the potent proliferation-stimulating hormone estradiol, and it is thus involved in the development of hormone-dependent ... breast cancer. Due to its high substrate specificity and the known relationships between its over expression and disease incidence, 17ß-HSD1 is considered an attractive target for drug development. Here, we have used structure-based virtual high-throughput screening to successfully identify potent nonsteroidal 17ß-HSD1 inhibitors. Computational screening of a drug-like +database containing 13 million compounds identified hits with a 2-benzylidenebenzofuran-3(2H)-one scaffold that we show to be highly potent 17ß-HSD1 inhibitors. The most potent in the series, compound 1, showed an IC50of 45 nM in our 17ß-HSD1 inhibition assay, and also showed good selectivity for 17ß-HSD1 over 17ß-HSD2.
