Abstract

Botulinum neurotoxins, responsible for the neuroparalytic syndrome botulism, are the deadliest of known biological toxins. The work described in this study was based on a three-zone pharmacophore model for botulinum neurotoxin serotype A light chain inhibition. Specifically, the pharmacophore defined a separation between the overlaps of several different, non-zinc(II)-coordinating small molecule chemotypes, enabling the design and synthesis of a new structural hybrid possessing a K = 600 nM (±100 nM). © 2009. i
