Abstract

We have designed and synthesized novel irreversible serine protease inhibitors containing aliphatic sulfonyl fluorides as an electrophilic trap. These substituted taurine sulfonyl fluorides derived from taurine or protected amino acids were conveniently synthesized from β-aminoethanesulfonyl chlorides using KF/18-crown-6 or from β-aminoethanesulfonates using DAST. Their potency of irreversible inhibition of serine proteases is described in different enzyme assays using chymotrypsin leading to binding affinities up to 22 μM.
