Abstract

A series of 4-aryl-5-(4-(methylsulfonyl)phenyl)-2-alkylthio and 2-alkylsulfonyl-1H-imidazole derivatives were synthesized. All compounds were tested in human blood assay to determine COX-1 and COX-2 inhibitory potency and selectivity. Among the synthesized compounds, 2-alkylthio series were more potent and selective than 2-sulfonylalkyl derivatives. In molecular modeling, interaction of 2-sulfonylalkyl moiety with Arg120 in COX-1 and an extra hydrogen bond with Tyr341 in COX-2 increased the residence time of ligands in the active site in 2-sulfonylalkyl and 2-alkylthio analogs, respectively.
