Luciferase reporter assays are commonly used in high-throughput screening methods. Here, we report new firefly luciferase (FLuc) inhibitors based on 5-benzyl-3-phenyl-4,5-dihydroisoxazoles and 5-benzyl-3-phenyl-1,4,2-dioxazoles, which showed up as "false positives" in a luciferase reporter gene-based assay for nuclear receptor antagonists. The inhibition was shown to be non-competitive for both natural enzyme substrates (D-luciferin and ATP), selective to FLuc and proven to arise from a direct interaction between the enzyme and the inhibitor. Of the 63 evaluated compounds, 28 showed significantly better inhibition potency than the well-known inhibitor resveratrol (IC50 = 59 nM), with 5 compounds having distinctly sub-nanomolar IC50 values. The most efficient compounds inhibited the luminescence at concentrations lower than 1/100 in comparison to resveratrol (lowest IC50 = 0.26 nM) and can thus be considered to belong to the most potent FLuc inhibitors reported thus far. Overall, the novel inhibitors form a unique molecular library for structure-activity relationship (SAR) analyses.
