Abstract

Cholesteryl ester transfer protein (CETP) is a glycoprotein involved in transporting lipoprotein particles and neutral lipids between high-density lipoprotein (HDL) and low density lipoproteins (LDL) and therefore its a proper target for treating dyslipidemia and related disorders. Guided by our previosuly-reported pharmacophore and QSAR models for CETP inhibition, we synthesized and bioassayed a series of benzylamino-methanones. The most potent illustrated 30% CETP inhibition at 10 μM.
Keywords: CETP inhibitors; high-density lipoprotein; pharmacophore modeling; quantitative structure-activity relationship; benzylamino-methanones CETP inhibitors; high-density lipoprotein; pharmacophore modeling; quantitative structure-activity relationship; benzylamino-methanones
