Cathepsins have emerged as important targets in various tissues degenerative disorders due to their involvement in degradation of extracellular matrices and endogenous protein turnover. Elevated cathepsins levels vis-à-vis decreased concentration of endogenous inhibitors has been reported at different diseased sites. The design and synthesis of specific potential anti-cathepsin agents is therefore of great significance. Most of potential anti-cathepsin agents developed have peptide based structures with an active warhead. Due to oral instability and immunogenic problems related to peptidyl inhibitors drift the synthesis and evaluation of non-peptide cathepsin inhibitors in last two decades. The present work provides a detailed structure activity relationship for developing potential non-peptide anticathepsin agents based on in-vitro inhibition studies of a library of synthesized thiocarbamoyl- non-peptide inhibitors.
