Abstract: Two isomeric N-(methoxycarbonylthienylmethyl)thioureas were synthesised by a sequence of radical bromination of methylthiophenecarboxylic esters, substitution with trifluoroacetamide anion, deprotection, formation of the corresponding isothiocyanates and addition of ammonia. The interaction of these new thiophene-based thioureas with inducible and neuronal nitric oxide synthase was evaluauted. These novel thienylmethylthioureas stimulated the activity of inducible Nitric Oxide Synthase (iNOS).
Keywords: nitric oxide synthase; iNOS; stimulation; thienylmethylthioureas
