A broad series of N-(3-mercaptoacyl) amino acid derivatives was evaluated for their ability to inhibit atriopeptidase (neutral endopeptidase, EC in vitro and in vivo. Structural parameters studied were (i) the substituent on the 2-position of the 3-mercaptopropionyl moiety, (ii) the amino acid component, (iii) the S-terminal derivative, and (iv) the C-terminal derivative. Optimum activity was observed for derivatives of methionine and S-alkylcysteines. N-[3-Mercapto-2(S)-[(2-methylphenyl)methyl]-1-oxopropyl]-L-methionine was identified as a highly effective inhibitor of atriopeptidase meriting evaluation as a potential cardiovascular therapeutic agent.
