Producción científica: Chapter


The oligo-benzamide scaffold is a rigid organic framework that can hold 2–3 functional groups as O-alkyl substituents on its benzamide units, mirroring their natural arrangement in an α-helix. Oligo-benzamides demonstrated outstanding α-helix mimicry and can be readily synthesized by following high yielding and iterative reaction steps in both solution-phase and solid-phase. A number of oligo-benzamides have been designed to emulate α-helical peptide segments in biologically active proteins and showed strong protein binding, in turn effectively disrupting protein-protein interactions in vitro and in vivo. In this chapter, the design of oligo-benzamides for mimicking α-helices, efficient synthetic routes for producing them, and their biomedical studies showing remarkable potency in inhibiting protein functions are discussed.
