Graphical Abstract:


17α-Hydroxylase/17,20-lyase is a target in the treatment of hormone-dependent prostate cancer. Here we report the results of a study into a range of alkanesulfonate derivatives of 4-hydroxybenzylimidazole which show the compounds to be good inhibitors with 5 [IC50=1.11µM (17α-OHase) and IC50=1.28µM (lyase)] being the most potent but weaker than ketoconazole.

Keywords: 17α-hydroxylase/17, 17α-OHase, 20-lyase, Azole, Inhibitors Lyase.
