Compound class: Synthetic organic
Comment: Netarsudil (AR-11324) is a combination Rho-associated protein kinase (Rho or ROCK) and norepinephrine transporter (NET) inhibitor [2,5]. Netarsudil is the S-enantiomeric, 2,4-dimethyl benzoate ester of compound 29 (Ki 0.2nM) described in [5]. Esterification improves bioavailability and corneal penetrating ability of the compound. It is an ocular hypotensive medication.

Bioactivity Comments
At 10 μM, AR-13324 inhibits NET by 96% and SERT by 94% [5]. In a kinase screening panel 0.5 μM AR-13324 inhibited 11 kinases by >90%. Of these 11, ROCK1, ROCK2, PKCδ and PKCη are the only four identified as potential targets for lowering intra-ocular pressure. The S-enantiomer is the more active isomer, with the R-enantiomer having a lower Ki of 106nM and the racemate having a Ki of 4.2nM vs. ROCK2 [5]. Preclinical evaluation is reported in [2].
