1,2-Epoxy-3-(p-nitrophenoxy)propane (EPNP) is known to inhibit pepsin A and other aspartic proteinases by reacting with the active site aspartic acid residue(s). However, the reaction is considerably slow in general, and therefore, it is desirable to develop similar reagents that are capable of inhibiting these enzymes more rapidly. In the present study, we synthesized a series of novel inhibitors which have a reactive epoxide group linked with peptide by a hydrazide bond, with a general structure: Iva-L-Val-L-Val-(L-AA)(n)-N2H2-ES-OEt (n = 0 approximately 2) (Iva, isovaleryl; AA, bulky hydrophobic or aromatic amino acid residue; ES, epoxysuccinyl). These inhibitors were shown to inhibit porcine pepsin A remarkably faster than EPNP.
