Structure-Activity Investigations and Optimisations of Non-metabolite Agonists for the Succinate Receptor 1

Publikation: Bidrag til tidsskriftTidsskriftartikelForskningfagfællebedømt

The succinate receptor 1 (SUCNR1) is a receptor for the metabolite succinate, which functions as a metabolic stress signal in the liver, kidney, adipose tissue and the retina. However, potent non-metabolite tool compounds are needed to reveal the physiological role and pharmacological potential of SUCNR1. Recently, we published the discovery of a computationally receptor-structure derived non-metabolite SUCNR1 agonist series with high target selectivity. We here report our structure-activity exploration and optimisation that has resulted in the development of agonists with nanomolar potency and excellent solubility and stability properties in a number of in vitro assays. Ligand-guided receptor models with high discriminative power between binding of active and inactive compounds were developed for design of novel chemotypes.
