Enamine’s covalent fragments produce potent and unique hits

In a recent JACS paper several academic groups collaborated on discovery of novel covalent inhibitors using a library of 993 acrylamides and chloroacetamides sourced from Enamine’s covalent fragment collection. The design was focusing on mild electrophiles that were supposed to overcome the selectivity challenge. The library was characterized by a new high-throughput thiol-reactivity assay and screened against 10 cysteine-containing proteins. Potent and unique primary hits have been found in the majority (7 out of 10) of cases.

A refined library used in the research with a few frequent hitters and excessively reactive fragments removed is available from Enamine on This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
