Abstract

New inhibitors of palmitoyl-CoA oxidation are based on the introduction of nitrogen heterocycles in the ‘Western Portion’ of the molecule. SAR studies led to the discovery of CVT-4325 (shown), a potent FOXi (IC50 = 380 nM rat mitochondria) with favorable PK properties (F = 93%, t1/2 = 13.6 h, dog).
