Non-nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitors (NNRTIs) represent potent anti-HIV agents targeting HIV-1 reverse transcriptase (RT), a crucial enzyme for the viral life cycle. We have previously identified a series of NNRTIs bearing a 2,3-diaryl-1,3-thiazolidin-4-one core and some compounds proved to be effective in inhibiting HIV-1 replication at micromolar concentration.

The new compounds proved to be effective to inhibit RT activity at micromolar concentrations.

Abstract

Non-nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitors (NNRTIs) represent potent anti-HIV agents targeting HIV-1 reverse transcriptase (RT), a crucial enzyme for the viral life cycle. We have previously identified a series of NNRTIs bearing a 2,3-diaryl-1,3-thiazolidin-4-one core and some compounds proved to be effective in inhibiting HIV-1 replication at micromolar concentration. As a continuation in this research work we report the design, the synthesis and the structure–activity relationship studies of a further series of 3-(1,3,4-thiadiazol-2-yl)thiazolidin-4-one derivatives containing an arylthioacetamide group as pharmacophoric structural requirement for binding to the RT catalytic area. The new compounds proved to be effective to inhibit RT activity at micromolar concentrations. Finally, docking studies were carried out in order to rationalize the biological results of the new synthesized inhibitors.
