Graphical Abstract:


Sulfonate derivatives of estrone (E1) were designed and synthesized as potential reversible inhibitors of E1 sulfatase (ES). The results of the biochemical evaluation show the compounds to be weak inhibitors in comparison to the irreversible inhibitor E1-3-O-sulfamate, however, two compounds were found to possess good inhibitory activity.

Keywords: Breast cancer, Estrone sulfatase, Reversible inhibition, Substrate mimic, Sulfonated derivative.
