Abstract:

We report the synthesis and evaluation of a range of 2-, 3- and 4-substituted derivatives of benzyl imidazole as probes of the active site of the enzyme 17α-hydroxylase/17,20-lyase (P45017α). In conclusion, the positioning and nature of the substituent appears to play an important role in the inhibition of this enzyme complex.

Keywords: Synthesis, Evaluation, Probe, Enzyme, 17α-hydroxylase, 17,20-lyase
