Functionalised tetrahydropyran scaffolds were prepared using a tethered enol-ether Prins cyclisation and elaborated to show their potential use in library synthesis. The key 4-hydroxytetrahydropyran scaffold could be readily manipulated to the 4-azidotetrahydropyran that could be elaborated via copper catalysed azide-alkyne cycloaddition or by reduction to the amine, to provide sp3-rich scaffolds useful for drug discovery. © 2017 Elsevier Ltd

The development of novel non-nucleoside inhibitors of the RSV polymerase complex is of significant clinical interest. Compounds derived from the benzothienoazepine core, such as AZ-27, are potent inhibitors of RSV viruses of the A-subgroup, but are only moderately active against the B serotype and as yet have not demonstrated activity in vivo. Herein we report the discovery of several novel families of C-2 arylated benzothienoazepine derivatives that are highly potent RSV polymerase inhibitors and reveal an exemplary structure, compound 4a, which shows low nanomolar activity against both RSV A and B viral subtypes. Furthermore, this compound is effective at suppressing viral replication, when administered intranasally, in a rodent model of RSV infection. These results suggest that compounds belonging to this chemotypes have the potential to provide superior anti-RSV agents than those currently available for clinical use. © 2017 Elsevier Ltd.

The peroxiredoxins (Prx) are ubiquitous peroxidases involved in important biological processes; however, details of their enzymatic mechanism remain elusive. To probe potential dynamics - function relationships, molecular dynamics simulations and electrostatic calculations were performed on the atypical 2-cysteine thiol peroxidase (Tpx) from Streptococcus pneumoniae and results compared to a previous study of a typical 2-cysteine Prx from Trypanosoma cruzi. The analyses indicate a commonality between both typical and atypical Prx: dynamic asymmetry. Asymmetry is observed in structure, fluctuations, and active site electrostatics. Key residues, including Glu150 and Phe153, play roles in the developing asymmetry; furthermore, in the atypical 2-Cys Tpx, Glu150 exhibits conformation fluctuations suggesting involvement in a proton shuttle. The existence of a pathway of connected residues appears to propagate the asymmetry. The commonality of asymmetry and coupling pathways in both typical and atypical Prxs suggests a driving force toward dimer asymmetry as a common feature that plays a functional role in creating one active site with a lower cysteine pKa. © 2012 American Chemical Society.

The discovery of a novel series of therapeutic agents that has been designed and optimized for treating chronic obstructive pulmonary disease is reported. The pharmacological strategy was based on the identification of compounds that inhibit a defined subset of kinase enzymes modulating inflammatory processes that would be effective against steroid refractory disease and exhibit a sustained duration of action after inhaled delivery. © 2016 American Chemical Society.
