Betulinic acid derivatives: a new class of specific inhibitors of human immunodeficiency virus type 1 entry.

Abstract:

A novel series of omega-aminoalkanoic acid derivatives of betulinic acid were synthesized and evaluated for their activity against human immunodeficiency virus (HIV). The anti-HIV-1 activity of several members of this new series was found to be in the nanomolar range in CEM 4 and MT-4 cell cultures. The optimization of the omega-aminoalkanoic acid side chain is described. The presence of an amide function within the side chain was found important for optimal activity. RPR 103611 (14g), a statine derivative, was found to be inactive against HIV-1 protease, reverse transcriptase, and integrase as well as on gp120/CD4 binding. "Time of addition" experiments suggested interaction with an early step of HIV-1 replication. As syncytium formation, but not virus-cell binding, seems to be affected, betulinic acid derivatives are assumed to interact with the postbinding virus-cell fusion process.
