Inhibition of the hERG potassium ion channel by non-nucleoside CMV polymerase antiviral inhibitors
WuXi AppTec scientists collaborated on a study to characterize a series of pyrroloquinoline derivatives that were designed and synthesized to understand the effect of various substitutions on human cytomegalovirus (HCMV) polymerase activity, antiviral activity, and hERG inhibition. Results suggest that substitutions can be fine-tuned to reduce hERG inhibition while maintaining HCMV antiviral potency.
