Part 3: Notch-sparing -secretase inhibitors: SAR studies of 2-substituted aminopyridopyrimidinones. Academic Article uri icon


  • In search for novel lead compounds as -secretase inhibitors, analogs of aminopyrido[2,3-d]pyrimidin-7-ones (I) were synthesized and evaluated for inhibitory effects on amyloid--peptide production and cleavage of the Notch1 receptor mediated by -secretase. Selected pyridopyrimidines, such as 1, 8, 9, 10, 11 and 16 are -secretase inhibitors that did not have an effect on Notch1 receptor processing.
