Store-operated calcium entry (SOCE) is important in the maintenance of calcium homeostasis and alterations in this mechanism are responsible for several pathological conditions, including acute pancreatitis. Since the discovery of SOCE, many inhibitors have been identified and extensively used as chemical probes to better elucidate the role played by this cellular mechanism.

Abstract

Store-operated calcium entry (SOCE) is important in the maintenance of calcium homeostasis and alterations in this mechanism are responsible for several pathological conditions, including acute pancreatitis. Since the discovery of SOCE, many inhibitors have been identified and extensively used as chemical probes to better elucidate the role played by this cellular mechanism. Nevertheless, only a few have demonstrated drug-like properties so far. Here, we report a class of biphenyl triazoles among which stands out a lead compound, 34, that is endowed with an inhibitory activity at nanomolar concentrations, suitable pharmacokinetic properties, and in vivo efficacy in a mouse model of acute pancreatitis.
