Renal dipeptidase (RDP) is an enzyme overexpressed in benign and malignant colorectal tumors. In an effort to identify potent inhibitors of this enzyme, a series of aminophosphinic acid derivatives were synthesized. Compounds 3a and 3c in which the phenyl ring was para substituted with F and Br and olefin with Z geometry, showed better inhibitory activity against RDP enzyme (IC 50=5-6nM).
