Ecto-5'-Nucleotidase inhibitors have great potential as anti-tumor agents. We have investigated biochemical properties of human and rat ecto-5'-Nucleotidases and characterized 19 small molecule sulfonic acid derivatives as potential inhibitors of ecto-5'-Nucleotidases. We identified 11 potent inhibitors of human and rat ecto-5'-Nucleotidases and checked their selectivity. Compound 10 (Sodium 2,4-dinitrobenzenesulfonate) with Ki value of 0.66 M and 19 (N-(4- sulfamoylphenylcarbamothioyl) pivalamide) with Ki value of 0.78 M were identified as the most potent inhibitors for human and rat ecto-5'-Nucleotidase, respectively. The present compounds have low molecular weights, water solubility and equal potency as compared to the reported inhibitors.
