Boceprevir | Antiviral, SARS-CoV2 Mpro inhibitor

Boceprevir (394730-60-0) directly inhibits Hepatitis C virus (HCV) NS3 protease (overall binding constant for formation of covalent adduct, Ki* = 14 nM; initial inhibition constant Ki = 7.8 µM). This blocks NS3 autoactivation, and subsequent cleavage and maturation of other viral proteins necessary for replisome assembly. This reversible, slow-binding ketoamide also restores host interferon signaling obstructed by HCV, thus reactivating the immune response1. Recently, it was also found to inhibit the key SARS-CoV-2 protease, Mpro (3CLpro) in vitro (Ki = 1.18 µM) and in cells (EC50 = 1.9 µM, virus-induced cytopathic effects (CPE) assay).2
