Protein tyrosine phosphatases (PTPases) are key enzymes in processes that regulate cell growth and differentiation. The inhibition of these enzymes can play a role in the modulation of multiple signaling pathways in which tyrosine phosphorylation dephosphorylation plays a role. PTP 1B is a particular protein tyrosine phosphatases that is often used as a prototypical member of that class of enzymes.
PTPase inhibitors are recognized as potential therapeutic agents for the treatment of diabetes. See, e.g. Moeller et al., 3(5):527-40, Current Opinion in Drug Discovery and Development, 2000; or Zhang, Zhong-Yin, 5:416-23, Current Opinion in Chemical Biology, 2001. The utility of PTPase inhibitors as therapeutic agents has been a topic of discussion in several review articles, including, or example, Expert Opin Investig Drugs 12(2):223-33, Feb. 2003.

Compound XI: The compound X is then further alkylated at to -50°C to room temperature with suitable base such as sodium hydride and variety of halides (e.g., RjBr, R2Br RS Br or RI I, Ral, Rsl, where RI; R2, RS are defined above) yields mono, di- or tri substituted compounds XI. The control of alkylation can be controlled by selecting the appropriate equivalence of the halide used.
The invention is illustrated by the following Examples. In the Examples, Examples 2-22 was carried out by the procedure of Example 1 and Examples 24-42 was carried out by the procedure of Example 23.

In vitro inhibition of FTP IBEnzymes
Human PTP IB (1-321) was cloned from a human cDNA library using conventional molecular biology techniques. The cDNA sequence was identical to the published human PTP1B sequence (Accession number M33689). The protein was expressed and purified from E. coli as described by Barford D. et.al J. Mol Biol (1994) 239, 726-730.
PTPase assays
The measurement of PTPase activity was carried out using one of two methods:
The first method for the measurement of PTP1B inhibitory activity a tyrosine phosphorylated peptide based on the amino acid sequence of insulin receptor tyrosine autophosphorylation site 1146 (TRDI(pY)E) was used as substrate. The reaction conditions were as follows:
PTP1B (0.5-2nM ) was incubated with compound for 15 min in buffer containing 37.5 mM Bis-Tris buffer pH 6.2, HOmMNaCl, 0.05% BSA and 2mM DTT. The reaction was started by the addition of 50µM substrate. After 20 min at room temperature (22-25°C), the reaction was stopped with KOH and the amount of free phosphate measured using Malachite Green as previously described (Harder et al. 1994 Biochem J. 298; 395).
The second method was used for the measurement of general PTPase inhibitory activity across a panel of PTPases the substrate (6,8-difluoro-4-methylumbelliferyl phosphate (DiFMUP; from Molecular Probes) was used at the Km for each enzyme. The buffer conditions were identical as in the Malachite Green assay. The reaction was stopped with KOH. In this case the dephosphoryated product becomes fluorescent and the fluorescense read (Excitiation:360mM/Emmission: 460nM).
For kinetic experiments, the same buffer conditions were used except that the reaction was started using enzyme and the reaction stopped after 10 minutes.
The IC50 values (in µM) for the PTP1B inhibitory activity of the compounds in the present application are in the range of 0.1 µM to 500 µM, preferably 1 µM to 100 µM. The most preferred compounds show an IC50 of Examples of the some compounds with its corresponding IC50 values are

Glucose Uptake Assay
The day before the assay the SKMC media was changed to high glucose DMEM , 25mM
Hepes, pH 7.0 and 2% Charcoal/dextran treated FBS for 19 hours.
On the morning of the assay, cells were starved for max. 2 hours in low glucose (5.5mM glucose) DMEM, 25 mM Hepes, pH 7.0 and 0.5% BSA. The starvation medium was removed and replaced with test medium (150mMNaCl, 25mM Hepes, pH 7.0) containing either 1% DMSO, or test compound diluted in DMSO or Porcine Insulin to a final concentrations of 1, 0.1, 0.05, 0.01 and O.OlµM. Each assay point was performed in triplicate. The cells were incubated for 45 min at 37°C. 10µM Cytochalasin B (CB) was added to appropriate wells to stop the active glucose transport (i.e., GLUT 1 & 4 ). At this point 2-Deoxy-D(U-14C)glucose (Amersham, Code CFB195, 200µCi/ml) was added to all wells to a final concentration of 0.8 µCi/ml. The cells were incubated for an additional 45 minutes at 37°C in an incubator. Cells were then very gently washed for three times in PBS (RT). The cells were then lysed with the addition of 0.05% NaOH solution for 20 min at RT. The lysate was transferred to a scintillation vial containing 5 ml of scintillation fluid and counted in a Beckman LS6500 Scintillation counter. Analysis of results: The counts obtained with CB (passive glucose transport values) were subtracted from every value obtained with PI (or compounds) in order to evaluate only active glucose transport. Fold increase was calculated by dividing values in the presence of PI (or compounds) by the value obtained in the presence of DMSO (control). Compounds were considered to be active when they increase glucose uptake at least 25% of the Porcine Insulin response at 0.05 µM.
In vivo inhibition of PTP IB: Effects of compounds on blood glucose levels in mouse model
To measure the anti-diabetic effect compounds were tested in well established rodent in vivo models of type 2 diabetes and obesity.
Example 45
Diet induced obese C57BL6/J mice (DIO mice)
Mice that have type 2 diabetes were generated by maintaining them on a high fat diet for 4-6 months (Diabetes vol. 37 Sept 1988). Male C57B16/J mice (age 3 - 4 weeks) were placed on high fat diet for 4-6 months. At this time they were hyperglycemic and hyperinsulinemic and weighed 40-50 g. DIO mice (n=10) were weighed and fasted for a two hour period prior to oral treatment. Immediately prior to dosing a pre-dose blood glucose reading was taken by snipping off a portion of the tail and collecting blood from the tail vein. Mice were treated either with a single dose of compound (acute) or once a day for 5 days (sub-chronic). For the acute studies, glucose was generally measured at 2h, 4h, 6h, 8h post treatment. Compounds were considered active if they showed a statistically significant (p≤0.05) glucose lowering (>15%) compared to the vehicle treated animals.
For sub-chronic (5 day) studies mice were dosed once a day by gavage as described above. On day five, glucose was measured prior to dosing (0 time) and 2 hours after dosing. Insulin and triglycerides were measured at 2 hour post dose. Compounds were considered active if they showed a statistically significant (p ≤ 0.05) glucose, insulin and triglyceride lowering compared to the vehicle treated animals.
