Synthesis of 2,4-diamino-6-(thioarylmethyl)pyrido[2,3-d]pyrimidines as dihydrofolate reductase inhibitors.

Six 2,4-diaminopyrido[2,3-d]pyrimidines with a 6-methylthio bridge to an aryl group were synthesized and biologically evaluated as inhibitors of Pneumocystis carinii (pc) and Toxoplasma gondii (tg) dihydrofolate reductase ( DHFR). The syntheses of analogues 3-8 were achieved by nucleophilic displacement of 2,4-diamino-6-bromomethylpyrido[2,3-d]pyrimidine 14 with various arylthiols. The alpha-naphthyl analogue 4 showed the highest selectivity ratios of 3.6 and 8.7 against pcDHFR and tgDHFR, respectively, versus rat liver (rl) DHFR. The beta-naphthyl analogue 5 exhibited the highest potency within the series with an IC(50) value against pcDHFR and tgDHFR of 0.17 and 0.09 microM, respectively. Analogue 4 was evaluated for in vitro antimycobacterium activity and was shown to inhibit the growth of Mycobacterium tuberculosis H(37)Rv cells by 58% at a concentration of 6.25 microg/mL.[1]
