The optimization of a series of 4-(dimethylamino)quinazoline antagonists of the melanin-concentrating hormone receptor 1 (MCH-R1) is described. The combination of the elaboration of both the linker portion and the terminal phenyl ring provided N-(cis-4-{[4-(dimethylamino)quinazolin-2-yl]amino}cyclohexyl)-3,4-difluorobenzamide hydrochloride 28 (ATC0175),(More)
A series of pyrimidine analogues derived from ATC0175 were potent antagonists of human MCH-R1 in vitro. Significantly improved receptor selectivity was achieved with several analogues from this series, but no improvement in brain partitioning was noted. One example from this series was shown to inhibit food intake and decrease body weight in a chronic(More)
A series of 4-(dimethylamino)quinazoline based antagonists of the melanin-concentrating hormone receptor 1 (MCH-R1) is described. This series was derived from a lead compound, AR129330, identified by HTS of a GPCR-directed library using a functional assay with a constitutively activated (CART) form of the receptor. The preliminary optimization resulted in(More)
