Description: M-31850 is a β-Hexosaminidase Inhibitor. M-31850 showed activity against the insect β-N-acetyl-D-hexosaminidase OfHex2. M-31850 acts as a substrate-competitive and selective inhibitor against human β-N-acetyl hexosaminidase (IC50 = 6.0 & 3.1 µM for hHex A & hHex B, respectively), while exhibiting much reduced potency against Jack Bean or bacterial Hex (IC50 = 280 & >500 µM for JBHex & SpHex, respectively) and little or no activity against SmHex or hOGN.

Additional Information

The GH20 β-N-acetyl-d-hexosaminidase OfHex2 from the insect Ostrinia furnacalis (Guenée) is a target potential for eco-friendly pesticide development. Although carbohydrate-based inhibitors against β-N-acetyl-D-hexosaminidases are widely studied, highly efficient, non-carbohydrate inhibitors are more attractive due to low cost and readily synthetic manner.
