A series of 3-nitro-4-substituted-aminobenzoic acids were prepared and found to act as potent and highly selective agonists of the orphan human GPCR GPR109b, a low affinity receptor for niacin. No activity was observed at the closely homologous high affinity niacin receptor, GPR109a. A second series, comprising 6-amino-substituted nicotinic acids was, also(More)
A series of 5-N,N-disubstituted-5-aminopyrazole-3-carboxylic acids were prepared and found to act as highly potent and selective agonists of the G-Protein Coupled Receptor (GPCR) GPR109b, a low affinity receptor for niacin and some aromatic d-amino acids. Little activity was observed at the highly homologous higher affinity niacin receptor, GPR109a.
A series of 5-alkyl pyrazole-3-carboxylic acids were prepared and found to act as potent and selective agonists of the human GPCR, GPR109a, the high affinity nicotinic acid receptor. No activity was observed at the highly homologous low affinity niacin receptor, GPR109b. A further series of 4-fluoro-5-alkyl pyrazole-3-carboxylic acids were shown to display(More)
The design and synthesis of novel 1a,2,5,5a-tetrahydro-1H-2,3-diaza-cyclopropa[a]pentalen-4-carboxamide CB2 selective ligands for the potential treatment of pain is described. Compound (R,R)-25 has good balance between CB2 agonist potency and selectivity over CB1, and possesses overall favorable pharmaceutical properties. It also demonstrated robust in vivo(More)
