From this venom, these workers identified and determined the structures of five undecapeptides, which are converting enzyme inhibitors. Like teprotide, these are proline-rich peptides: the structure of the most active one in vivo, which is at least as active as teprotide , is: < Glu-Lys-Trp-Arg-Pro-Pro-Pro-Val-Ser-ProPro. This work, together with that described above, created a key part of the foundation upon which orally active converting enzyme inhibitors were constructed. Clinical studies with teprotide [see Ondetti and Cushman (2)] established that this nonapeptide effectively lowers blood pressure in a variety of clinical conditions characterized by normal as well as high renin levels, augments the antihypertensive effects of diuretics and sodium restriction, and its hemodynamic effects portended the usefulness of angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitors in the treatment of congestive heart failure.

They also provide values of Ki for some small peptides, Table 3. The best of them, Lys-Ala displays a Ki of 5 X lF5M and is, like Ala-Pro, a reasonable starting point from which to explore ideas for enhancing inhibitory potency. 28 ARTHUR A . PATCHETT & EUGENE H. 06 Taken from Das and Soffer (74). C. CAPTOPRIL DESIGN The goal of attaining potent, low molecular weight, orally-active angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitors was realized with the synthesis of captopril(l52, 153). The design breakthrough was based on the hypothesis that angiotensin-converting enzyme shares similarities in mechanism and, thereby, in active-site structure with carboxypeptidase-A (Section 111).

10) provide a direct measure of kl,the rate constant for the formation of the E-I complex. MECHANISM A E + + S =+ ES-E + P I k, J I k-, EI MECHANISM B E + S =+ ES-E + + P I fast I[ EI + EI* k2 k -2 Figure 12. Mechanism A describes competitive inhibition involving slow formation of a single enzyme-inhibitor complex. Kinetic constants derived for Mechanism A are compiled in Table 16. Mechanism B describes competitive inhibition involving rapid equilibration to a first E-I complex, followed by rate determining rearrangement of this complex to a second, more stable one.
