Calcium Ion Channel Library

Designed for discovery of new Voltage-gated calcium channel blockers

10 560 compounds

Calcium ion channels are responsible for an unusually large variety of physiological functions. Calcium ions entering the cell through voltage-gated channels serve as the second messenger of electrical signaling, initiating many different cellular events. As a target class calcium channels offer both challenges first of in designing selective antagonists of the channel subtypes and great opportunities following proof-of-concept provided by the marketed drugs.

Enamine voltage-gated targeted library encompasses both known chemotypes and molecules based on novel scaffolds identified in our in silico studies and MedChem based scaffold hopping projects.

Main futures of the library:

  •   Lead-likeness: 86%
  •   Average Fsp3 0.38; average TPSA 60.5 Å2
  •   Novel Chemotypes

Library design

We have undertaken in-depth analysis of known calcium channel blockers and carefully selected 6,863 most promising drug-like structures from our screening collection exceeding 2,000,000 small molecular weight compounds.

Privileged chemotypes

such as dihydropyridines, GABA-analogues, succinimides, 4-substituted prolines, and quinazolines were included in the library.

Pharmacophore modeling

was carried out for several relevant calcium channel blockers resulting in about 1 700 compound set.

Scaffold hopping

Structures of numerous known calcium channel blockers contain piperazine or 4-aminopiperidine. Recently several successful examples of bioisosteric replacement of these motifs by other diamine cores have been reported. We have extended this approach to a rich variety of compounds built on unique analogues of piperazine and 4-aminopiperidine available exclusively from Enamine and continued with other cores, e.g. imidazopiredazines, providing novel sets of compounds.
