Abstract

Screening of an in-house library of compounds identified 12-thiazole abietanes as a new class of reversible inhibitors of the human metabolic serine hydrolase. Further optimization of the first hit compound lead to the 2-methylthiazole derivative 18, with an IC50 value of 3.4 +/- 0.2 mu M and promising selectivity. ABHD16A has been highlighted as a new target for inflammation-mediated pain, although selective inhibitors of hABHD16A (human ABHD16A) have not yet been reported. Our study presents abietane-type diterpenoids as an attractive starting point for the design of selective ABHD16A inhibitors, which will contribute toward understanding the significance of hABHD16A inhibition in vivo.
