Huntington aggregation inhibitory activities and transglutaminase inhibitory activities of 2APB analogues were measured. 2-APB analogues regulated the Huntington aggregation. This fact provided an example that 2-APB analogues can regulate cellular process. Diphenyl (aminoacidonate N,O) boranes, which are effective regulator of Ca2+ release and cellular process, were effective regulators of Huntington aggregation. It was also found that many of 2-APB analogues have moderate transglutaminase inhibition activities 2-Aminoethyl di(4-trifluorophenyl) borinate is a good transglutaminase regurator.
