Abstract

With the aim to identify small molecules able to disrupt PA-PB1 subunits interaction of influenza virus (flu) RNA-dependent RNA polymerase, and based on previous structural and computational information, in this paper we have designed and synthesized a new series of cycloheptathiophene-3-carboxamide (cHTC) derivatives. Their biological evaluation led to highlight important structural insights along with new interesting compounds, such as the 2-hydroxybenzamido derivatives 29, 31, and 32, and the 4-aminophenyl derivative 54, which inhibited viral growth in the low micromolar range (EC50 = 0.18 -1.2 mu M) at no toxic concentrations (CC50 > 250 mu M).
