Abstract

A series of saccharin derivatives I has been synthesized and evaluated for their inhibitory activity toward human leukocyte elastase and cathepsin G. Most of the compounds were found to be efficient and time-dependent inhibitors of elastase. Inactivated elastase was found to regain its activity almost fully after 24 h (80-90% activity) and the half-lives of reactivation ranged between 12-15 h. Addition of hydroxylamine to fully-inactivated enzyme led to rapid and complete recovery of enzymatic activity. A tentative mechanism of action is proposed on the basis of biochemical and model studies.
