Discovery of novel 2-(3-phenylpiperazin-1-yl)-pyrimidin-4-ones as glycogen synthase kinase-3β inhibitors

Discovery of novel 2-(3-phenylpiperazin-1-yl)-pyrimidin-4-ones as glycogen synthase kinase-3β inhibitors
We herein describe the results of further evolution of glycogen synthase kinase (GSK)-3β inhibitors from our promising compounds containing a 2-phenylmorpholine moiety. Transformation of the morpholine moiety into a piperazine moiety resulted in potent GSK-3β inhibitors. SAR studies focused on the phenyl moiety revealed that a 4-fluoro-2-methoxy group afforded potent inhibitory activity toward GSK-3β. Based on docking studies, new hydrogen bonding between the nitrogen atom of the piperazine moiety and the oxygen atom of the main chain of Gln185 has been indicated, which may contribute to increased activity compared with that of the corresponding phenylmorpholine analogues. Effect of the stereochemistry of the phenylpiperazine moiety is also discussed.
