Rapalogues as hCES2A Inhibitors: In Vitro and In Silico Investigations

32 views | Nov 17 2020

Cheng-Cheng Shi et al. demonstrated that several marketed rapalogues were potent and specific hCES2A inhibitors, and these agents could serve as leading compounds for the development of more efficacious hCES2A inhibitors to modulate the pharmacokinetic profiles and toxicity of hCES2A-substrate drugs (such as the anticancer agent irinotecan).
