1,5-Benzothiazepine: Bioactivity and targets
1,5-Benzothiazepine nucleus is present in a number of clinically used drugs such as diltiazem, clentiazem, thiazesim, quetiapine, and clothiapine. 1,5-Benzothiazepine can be easily introduced in the molecule having 2-aminothiophenol moiety. This article considers various targets for 1,5-benzothiazepine nucleus to establish structural activity relationship. It is an attempt to compile account of various structural modification in 1,5-benzothiazepine scaffold as reported for their versatile biological activities. This review would provide a platforms for selection of suitable moieties and development of specific chemical entities with desired features.
