Selective optimization of side activities is a valuable source of novel lead structures in drug discovery. In this study, a computer-aided approach was used to deorphanize the pleiotropic cholesterol-lowering effects of the beta-blocker talinolol, which result from the inhibition of the enzyme soluble epoxide hydrolase (sEH). X-ray structure analysis of the sEH in complex with talinolol enables a straightforward optimization of inhibitory potency. The resulting lead structure exhibited in vivo activity in a rat model of diabetic neuropatic pain.
