The synthesis and potent inhibitory activity of novel imidazole methyl 3-(4-(aryl-2-ylamino)phenyl)propanoates in a MCF-7 CYP26A1 microsomal assay is described. The induction of CYP26A1 mRNA was used to evaluate the ability of the compounds to enhance the biological effects of all-trans retinoic acid (ATRA) in a retinoid-responsive neuroblastoma cell line. The most promising inhibitor, 3-imidazol-1-yl-2-methyl-3-[4-(naphthalen-2-ylamino)-phenyl]-propionic acid methyl ester (20), with an IC(50) of 3 nM (compared with liarozole IC(50) of 540 nM and R116010 IC(50) of 10 nM) was further evaluated for CYP selectivity using a panel of CYP enzymes, mutagenicity (Ames screen), and hepatic stability.
