Synthesis and evaluation of vinyl sulfones as caspase-3 inhibitors. A structure–activity study

The first structure–activity relationship study of vinyl sulfones as caspase-3 inhibitors is reported. A series of 12 vinyl sulfones was synthesized and evaluated for two downstream caspases (caspases-3 and -7). Dipeptidyl derivatives were significantly superior to their counterparts containing only Asp Read more ›
