Inhibitors of Platelet Integrin alphallb-beta3: Summary
The alphaIIbbeta3 receptor plays a vital role in hemostasis and thrombosis, where receptor deficiency causes the hemorrhagic disorder, Glanzmann thrombasthenia, and uncontrolled receptor activation causes thrombosis and blood vessel occlusion. Small molecule inhibitors of alphaIIbbeta3, tirofiban and eptifibatide, have undesirable side effects thought to arise from conformational changes in more ..

NCGC Assay Overview:
The alphaIIbbeta3 receptor plays a vital role in hemostasis and thrombosis, where receptor deficiency causes the hemorrhagic disorder, Glanzmann thrombasthenia, and uncontrolled receptor activation causes thrombosis and blood vessel occlusion. Small molecule inhibitors of alphaIIbbeta3, tirofiban and eptifibatide, have undesirable side effects thought to arise from conformational changes in alphaIIbbeta3. These changes transiently activate the receptor to cause spontaneous platelet aggregation and thrombus formation. The goal of this project is to identify new alphaIIbbeta3 antagonists that do not activate the receptor or initiate conformational changes that expose novel epitopes.
RUC-1, a compound containing a thiadiazolopyrimidinone core, inhibits alphaIIbbeta3 with ~10 uM IC50 in vitro (Blue et al., 2008) and shows anti-thrombotic effects in vivo (Blue et al., 2009). Analogs of RUC-1 were synthesized and tested in platelet binding (AID 2634) and platelet aggregation (AID 2639) assays to assess their activity. Selectivity was determined by a cell-based alphaVbeta3 binding assay (AID 2628). This work identified RUC-1 analogs that were selective and more potent inhibitors of alphaIIbbeta3. A probe compound (CID 44820665; probe number ML165) was identified later.

This summary is written for the purposes of summarizing the probe activities from the project. MLSCN probes are given a score of 100. Molecules in the prior art are given a score of 80. Other, less active molecules in the same chemical series as the probe molecules are given a score of 50. Inconclusive compounds are given a score of 20. Inactive analogues from these series are given a score of 0.
