Abstract

There is interest in developing potent, selective, and cell-permeable inhibitors of human ferrous iron and 2-oxoglutarate (2OG) oxygenases for use in functional and target validation studies. The 3-component Betti reaction enables efficient one-step C-7 functionalisation of modified 8-hydroxyquinolines (8HQs) to produce cell-active inhibitors of KDM4 histone demethylases and other 2OG oxygenases; the work exemplifies how a template-based metallo-enzyme inhibitor approach can be used to give biologically active compounds.
