Endo peptidyl epoxides, in which the central epoxidic moiety replaces the scissile amide bond of a P(3)-P(3)' peptide, were designed as cysteine proteases inhibitors. The additional P'-S' interactions, relative to those of an exo peptidyl epoxide of the same P(3)-P(1) sequence, significantly improved affinity to the enzymes papain and cathepsin B, but also changed the mode of inhibition from active-site directed inactivation to reversible competitive inhibition. Computational models rationalize the binding affinity and the inhibition mechanism.
