Peptidyl Nitroalkene Inhibitors of Main Protease (Mpro) rationalized by Computational/Crystallographic Investigations as Antivirals against SARS-CoV-2, Research Square, doi:10.21203/rs.3.rs-2740892/v1 ,
Abstract The coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic continues to represent a global public health issue. The viral main protease (Mpro) represents one of the most attractive targets for the development of antiviral drugs. Herein we report peptidyl nitroalkenes exhibited enzyme inhibitory activity against Mpro (Ki: 1-10 micM) and three of them good anti-SARS-CoV-2 infection activity in the low micromolar range (EC50: 1-12 micM) without significant toxicity. Additional kinetic studies of compounds FGA145, FGA146 and FGA147 show that all three compounds inhibit Cathepsin L, denoting a possible multitarget effect of these compounds in the antiviral activity. QM/MM computer simulations assisted in the design and in elucidating the way of action. Finally, structural analysis shows, in agreement with the computer predictions, the binding mode of FGA146 and FGA147 to the active site of the protein. Our results illustrate that peptidyl nitroalkenes are potent covalent reversible inhibitors of the Mpro and cathepsin L, and that inhibitors FGA145, FGA146 and FGA147 prevent infection becoming promising drugs against SARS-CoV-2.
