A summary of the most common chemical descriptors (InChI Key and SMILES codes) for (S)-Aquamox are summarized together with 3D and 2D structures and relevant physico-chemical properties.

What is the (S)-Aquamox?

The molecule (S)-Aquamox presents a molecular formula of C10H12ClN3O3S and its IUPAC name is (2S)-7-chloro-2-ethyl-4-oxo-2,3-dihydro-1H-quinazoline-6-sulfonamide.

S-Aquamox is a molecule that is being studied for its potential use in treating cancer. It is a small molecule that is able to bind to and inhibit the activity of a protein called Aquaporin-4 (AQP4). AQP4 is a protein that belongs in high levels in many types of cancer cells, and it is thought to play a role in cancer cell proliferation and survival. S-Aquamox has been shown to inhibit the activity of AQP4 in cancer cells, and to kill cancer cells in laboratory studies. The use of S-Aquamox in cancer treatment is still in the early stages of research, and it is not yet known if it will be effective in humans..

Other names (synonyms)

IUPAC nomenclature provides a standardized method for naming chemical compounds. Although this system is widely used in chemistry, many chemical compounds have also other names commonly used in different contexts. These synonyms can come from a variety of sources and are used for a variety of purposes.

One common source of synonyms for chemical compounds is the common or trivial names, assigned on the basis of appearance, properties, or origin of the molecule.

Another source of synonyms are historical or obsolete names employed in the past, however replaced nowadays by more modern or standardized names.

In addition to common and historical names, chemical compounds may also have synonyms that are specific to a particular field or industry.

LogP and topological polar surface area (TPSA) values were estimated using Open Babel software.

The n-octanol/water partition coeficient (Kow) data is applied in toxicology and drug research. Kow values are used, to guess the environmental fate of persistent organic pollutants. High partition coefficients values, tend to accumulate in the fatty tissue of organisms. Molecules with a log(Kow) (or LogP) greater than 5 are considered to bioaccumulate.

TPSA values are the sum of the surface area over all polar atoms or molecules, mainly oxygen and nitrogen, also including hydrogen atoms.

In medicinal chemistry, TPSA is used to assess the ability of a drug to permeabilise cells.

For molecules to penetrate the blood-brain barrier (and act on receptors in the central nervous system), TPSA values below 90 Å2 are required. Thus, molecules with a polar surface area greater than 140 Å2 tend to be poorly permeable to cell membranes.
