Synonyms: AZD7986 | compound 30  | INS 1007 | INS1007
Compound class: Synthetic organic
Comment: Brensocatib (formerly AZD7986) is reported as a second generation, oral, selective and reversible inhibitor of dipeptidyl peptidase 1 (DPP1; a.k.a. cathepsin C) . Cathepsin C is required for the activation of proinflammatory neutrophil serine proteases, making this enzyme a drug target whose pharmacological inhibition has potential in the treatment of diseases such as chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) which is driven in part by excessive neutrophil activation and dysregulated neutrophil elastase activity. The compound was originally developed by AstraZeneca, but is now being progressed by Insmed.
Ligand Activity Visualisation Charts
These are box plot that provide a unique visualisation, summarising all the activity data for a ligand taken from ChEMBL and GtoPdb across multiple targets and species. Click on a plot to see the median, interquartile range, low and high data points. A value of zero indicates that no data are available. A separate chart is created for each target, and where possible the algorithm tries to merge ChEMBL and GtoPdb targets by matching them on name and UniProt accession, for each available species. However, please note that inconsistency in naming of targets may lead to data for the same target being reported across multiple charts.✖
