4 Problem Description & Market Need (What is the problem? Or, What is needed in the market? And, How big is the potential market? What is the disease (if its a medical talk)? ) Inhibition of enzymes catalyzed phosphoryl transfer reactions is of significant current medical interest since these enzymes regulate a number of important biochemical pathways. The importance of these enzymes allows to consider them as prominent targets for inhibitor design. Of particular interest is of inhibition of alkaline phosphatases involved in hormone signalling, tissue mineralization, tissue inflammation and other biological processes. Calcium ions are considered as universal second messengers that play an important role in electrical and pharmacological coupling in smooth muscles. Electrical or pharmacological stimulation of smooth muscles during the excitation/contraction cycle changes the concentration of Ca2+ in myocytes, which is regulated by systems of energy-independent (passive) and energy-dependent (active) transport of these cations.
5 Brief technology description Calixarenes substituted with different pharmacophoric groups have shown multifarious biological activity highly diverse biomedical applications of these molecules now include antiviral, anti-thrombotic activities, enzyme blocking and protein complexation. For example, the preorganization of phosphonic acid fragments on the calixarene platform results in a significant increase in the inhibition of alkaline phosphatase
6 Advantages (What is my unique and overwhelming technology advantage?) Calixarenes are promising scaffolds for design of inhibitors containing of bioisosteric groups – the medicine- relevant molecules. For example, effective inhibition of alkaline phosphatases is of significant interest since these enzymes catalyze the hydrolysis and transphosphorylation of phosphate monoesters. The calixarene-methylene-bis-phosphonic acid is one of the most efficient substance among the alkaline phosphatase inhibitors described in the literature. Calixarenephosphonic acids in concentration 100µM inhibit enzymatic activity of Na+, K+-ATPase by 86-98% and dont practically affect activity of Mg2+, ATPase.
7 Experimental results Calixarenesulfonylamidines influence Mg2+, ATP-dependent Ca2+ accumulation (Mg2+, ATP-dependent calcium pump) in the myometrial sarcoplasmic reticulum In this case Ca2+ transport was decreased by 75%. Calixarene- phosphonic acids in concentration 100µM inhibit enzymatic activity of Na+, K+-ATPase by 86-98% and dont practically affect activity of Mg2+, ATPase. These calixarenes are more efficient than ouabaine in suppressing enzymatic activity of the sodium pump.
8 Stage of development (clinical tests if medical) and international patents A series of calixarene based alkaline phosphatase inhibitors and Ca2+ exchange regulators were synthesized in the Institute of Organic Chemistry NASU (see ). The high phosphatase inhibition activity and Ca2+ exchange regulation properties of the calixarenes were studied in the Institute of Bioorganic & Petrochemistry NASU and in the Institute of Biochemistry NASU (Org. Lett., Vol. 8, No. 4, 2006, p ; Tetrahedron Letters 46 (2005) 7459–7462).
