Abstract

A series of 2-(hydrazinocarbonyl)-3-substituted-phenyl-1H-indole-5-sulfonamides and 1-({[5-(aminosulfonyl)-3-phenyl-1H-indol-2-yl]carbonyl}amino)-2,4,6 trimethylpyridinium perchlorates possessing various 2-, 3- or 4-substituted phenyl groups with methyl-, halogeno- and methoxy-functionalities, as well as the perfluorophenyl moiety, have been evaluated as inhibitors of the beta-carbonic anhydrases (CAs, EC 4.2.1.1) from the pathogenic fungi Cryptococcus neoformans (Can2) and Candida albicans (CaNce103). Both enzymes were potently inhibited by these sulfonamides, K(I)s in the range of 4.4-118 nM against Can2, and of 5.1-128 against CaNce103, respectively. Minor structural changes in the 3-substituted phenyl moiety contribute significantly to the inhibitory activity. Some of the investigated sulfonamides showed promising selectivity ratios for inhibiting Can2 over the host, human enzymes CA I and II.
