  1. 1. Design and Synthesis of Hepatitis C Virus NS3 Protease Inhibitors Incorporating a P2 Cyclopentane-Derived Scaffold

    Author : Marcus Bäck; Anja Sandström; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; HCV; NS3 protease; Proline mimic; Cyclopentane-derived scaffold; Linear inhibitors; Macrocyclic inhibitors; Organic synthesis; Organisk syntes;

    Abstract : This thesis describes the design, synthesis and structure-activity relationships analysis of potential inhibitors targeting the hepatitis C virus (HCV) NS3 protease. Also discussed is the disease caused by HCV infection and the class of enzymes known as proteases. READ MORE

  2. 2. Novel Procedures for Identification and Characterization of Viral Proteases Inhibitors

    Author : Angelica Ehrenberg; Helena Danielson; Celia Schiffer; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; drug discovery; viral proteases; inhibitors; Hepatitis C; NS3; cytomegalovirus; Biokemi; Biochemistry;

    Abstract : Viral proteases are often considered to be attractive drug targets because of their crucial function in the viral replication machinery. In order to increase our knowledge of these important targets and to contribute to the discovery and development of new antiviral drugs, the proteases from hepatitis C virus (HCV) and human cytomegalovirus (HCMV) have been produced and their interactions with inhibitors and fragments have been characterized, using enzyme inhibition and SPR biosensor based interaction assay.

  4. 4. Design and Synthesis of Serine and Aspartic Protease Inhibitors

    Author : Fredrik Wångsell; Ingemar Kvarnström; Olle Karlsson; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; organic chemistry; organic synthesis; metathesis; HCV; NS3; protease; proline isosteres; inhibitor; aspartic protease inhibitors; hydroxyethylene; Organic synthesis; Organisk syntes;

    Abstract : This thesis describes the design and synthesis of compounds that areintended to inhibit serine and aspartic proteases. The first part of the text deals with preparation of inhibitors of the hepatitis C virus (HCV) NS3 serine protease. Hepatitis C is predominantly a chronic disease that afflicts about 170 million people worldwide. READ MORE

  5. 5. Design and Synthesis of Acyclic and Macrocyclic Peptidomimetics as Inhibitors of the Hepatitis C Virus NS3 Protease

    Author : Anna Lampa; Anja Sandström; Youla Tsantrizos; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; hepatitis C virus; HCV; NS3 protease inhibitor; structure-activity relationship; phenylglycine; ring-closing metathesis; Medicinal Chemistry; Läkemedelskemi;

    Abstract : Hepatitis C is a blood-borne disease affecting 130-170 million people worldwide. The causative agent, hepatitis C virus (HCV), infects the liver and is the major reason for chronic liver disease worldwide. The HCV NS3 protease, a key enzyme in the virus replication cycle, has been confirmed to be an important target for drug development. READ MORE
