Human Ghrelin o-acyltransferase inhibitors

James Houghland (Inventor), John Chisholm (Inventor)

Research output: Patent


A class of cyanosteroid compounds that efficiently inhibit ghrelin acylation by ghrelin O-acyltransferase. The compounds have a steroid scaffold with α,β-unsaturated ketone in the A ring position such an α-cyanoenone. Exemplary compounds include (5S,8S,9S,10S,13S,14S)-10,13-dimethyl-3-oxo-4,5,6,7,8,9,10,11,12,13,14,15,16,17-tetradecahydro-3H-cyclopenta[a]phenanthrene-2-carbonitrile.
