High impact information on isophthalamide

  • Compound 20 with the N-terminal isophthalamide proved to be the most potent HE inhibitor (IC(50) = 30 nM) toward BACE [1].
  • Steric interactions in 1,3-dicarboxamidoanthraquinones have been employed to 'twist' isophthalamide-like anion binding sites; the crystal structure of the fluoride complex of a bis-3,5-dichlorophenylamide derivative shows the receptor acting as a 'hydrogen-bonding corner' in a '2 + 2' fluoride containing molecular box [2].
  • A pH responsive pseudopeptide, poly(L-lysine iso-phthalamide), has been modified with a hydrophilic poly(ethylene glycol) analogue, Jeffamine M-1000 and the effect of grafting ratio on the pH responsive behaviour of the grafted polymers in aqueous solution investigated using fluorescence and 1H NMR spectroscopy [3].
  • However, at pH 5.5, relative to poly (L-lysine iso-phthalamide), the grafted polymers displayed a better ability to rupture the outer membranes of these cells [4].
  • 5. Relative to the degree of lysis displayed by poly(L-lysine iso-phthalamide), lysis was reduced by partial esterification and increased by replacing the aromatic iso-phthaloyl moiety with a long chain aliphatic dodecyl moiety [5].
