Identification of a sub-micromolar, non-peptide inhibitor of β-secretase with low neural cytotoxicity through in silico screening
MetadataShow full item record
Nowadays identification of novel non-peptide β-secretase (BACE-1, hereinafter) inhibitors with low cytotoxicity and good blood–brain barrier (BBB) property holds common interest of drug discovery for Alzheimer’s disease. Twenty SPECS compounds were tested in BACE-1 FRET assays and methylthiazoletetrazolium (MTT) cytotoxicity experiment. Two compounds: 2 and 15 demonstrated IC50 values of 0.53 and 9.4 μM. In addition, 2 showed least toxic effect to the neuroblastoma cells. The results from both in silico and in vitro studies provided new pharmacophoric entities for chemical synthesis and optimization on the current discovered BACE-1 small molecule inhibitors.

Carbon-tolerant Ni-based cermet anodes modified by proton conducting yttrium- and ytterbium-doped barium cerates for direct methane solid oxide fuel cellsLi, M.; Hua, B.; Luo, J.; Jiang, San Ping; Pu, J.; Chi, B.; Jian, L. (2015)© The Royal Society of Chemistry. Conventional Ni-based cermet anodes such as Ni-gadolinia doped ceria (Ni-GDC) suffer from low carbon deposition resistance in direct methane solid oxide fuel cells (SOFCs). Here we show ...
