AbstractDihydroceramide desaturase is the last enzyme in the biosynthesis of ceramide de novo. The cyclopropene-containing sphingolipid GT11 is a competitive inhibitor of dihydroceramide desaturase. The biological effects of chemical modification of the GT11 amide linkage are reported in this article. Either N-methyl substitution or replacement of the amide -carbonyl methylene by oxygen result in inactive compounds. In contrast, both urea (3) and thiourea (4) analogs of GT11, as well as three -ketoamides (5–7), did inhibit the desaturation of N-octanoylsphinganine to N-octanoylsphingosine, although with significantly lower potency than GT11. Furthermore, the -ketoamides 5–7 inhibit the acidic ceramidase with similar potencies (IC50 52–83 µM). Inhibition of the neutral/alkaline ceramidase by these compounds requires around 20-fold higher concentrations. Structure–activity relationships and the biological interest of these compounds are discussed.
