Synthesis, Biochemical Evaluation and Rationalisation of the Inhibitory Activity of a Range of Derivatives of 2-imidazol-1-yl-1-phenyl-ethanone as Potential Novel Inhibitors of 17α-hydroxylase/17,20-lyase (P-45017α)

We report the results of the evaluation of a series of imidazole-based compounds against the enzyme 17α- hydroxylase/17,20-lyase (P-45017α). The results show that the compounds were, in general, weak inhibitors of P-45017α in comparison to the standard inhibitor ketoconazole (KTZ) - one was, however, found to be more potent than KTZ.
