A series of 6-substituted 4,5,6,7-tetrahydro-5-methylimidazo[4,5,1-jk][1,4]benzodiazepin- 2(1H)-ones (9) have been synthesized and tested for their ability to inhibit the replication of the HIV-1 virus in MT-4 cells. Two synthetic methods are described, one of which allows the synthesis of single enantiomers of the final products. A structure-activity study(More)
Generally, antipsychotic agents are dopamine receptor blocking agents that also block conditioned avoidance responding (CAR) in the rat. Recently, however, both (Q-methoxyphenyl)piperazine (OMPP, 1h) and (m-chlorophenyl)piperazine (MCPP, 1o) have been reported to block conditioned avoidance responding in the rat although neither has dopamine receptor(More)
We describe a new class of potent, non-amide-based small molecule thrombin inhibitors in which an amidinohydrazone is used as a guanidine bioisostere on a non-peptide scaffold. Compound 4 exhibits nM inhibition of thrombin, is selective for thrombin, and shows 60 and 23% bioavailability in rabbits and dogs, respectively. Crystallographic analysis of 4 bound(More)
Although thrombin has been extensively researched with many examples of potent and selective inhibitors, the key characteristics of oral bioavailability and long half-life have been elusive. We report here a novel series non-peptidic phenyl-based, highly potent, highly selective and orally bioavailable thrombin inhibitors using oxyguanidines as(More)
Recently, we reported on a series of arylpiperazines 4 which exhibit high affinity for the serotonin 5-HT-1A and 5-HT-1B binding sites. Although these compounds interact weakly with dopamine D-1 and D-2 receptors, they are reasonably potent in inhibiting conditioned avoidance responding (CAR) in the rat, an indication of potential antipsychotic activity.(More)
