Endothelins (ET) are potent vasoactive peptides implicated in the pathogenesis of a number of vascular diseases. The effects of ET on mammalian organs and cells are initiated by binding to ETA or ETB receptors. In this report, we document the pharmacology of A-127722, a novel ETA-selective receptor antagonist. A-127722 inhibits [125I]ET-1 binding to cloned(More)
Experiments were conducted to characterize the nature of a phosphoramidon-sensitive endothelin-converting enzyme in vivo by evaluating the pressor response to a bolus intravenous (i.v.) injection of endothelin family peptides following administration of phosphoramidon in anesthetized Sprague-Dawley rats. Phosphoramidon given i.v. at 10 mg/kg completely(More)
Endothelin-1 (ET-1) is reported to be the most powerful constrictor of blood vessels known. Atrial natriuretic factor is a potent relaxor of contracted vessels. This study examined the potential interaction between these vasoactive peptides on rabbit aortic rings. ET-1 contracted the rings in a dose-dependent manner with an EC50 (-log M) of 9.78 +/- 0.16.(More)
A collection of analogues of atrial natriuretic peptide (ANP) were screened for their ability to inhibit ANP-induced cGMP stimulation. The antagonists revealed through this screen are structurally related; almost all are substituted at either aspartate-13 or phenylalanine-26. This tendency is consistent throughout several families of small ANP analogues,(More)
Endothelins (ETs), 21-amino-acid peptides involved in the pathogenesis of various diseases, bind to ET(A) and ET(B) receptors to initiate their effects. Based on the same core structure, we have developed four small-molecule ET receptor antagonists, ABT-627 (atrasentan), ABT-546, A-182086 and A-192621, which exhibit differences in selectivity for ET(A) and(More)
We have discovered a novel class of endothelin (ET) receptor antagonists through pharmacophore analysis of the existing non-peptide ET antagonists. On the basis of this analysis, we determined that a pyrrolidine ring might replace the indian ring in SB 209670. The resultant compounds were readily prepared and amenable to extensive SAR studies. Thus a series(More)
This study evaluated the effects of rat ANP(5-28) infusion into the blood-perfused dog gracilis muscle at concentrations ranging from 30 to 10,000 pg/ml. The vasculature of gracilis muscles from anesthetized beagle dogs was isolated and pump-perfused at constant flow with blood utilizing an extracorporeal circuit. Maximal vasodilatory capacity was(More)
Two new fused indoles were found to overcome multidrug resistance in P388/Adr cells in vitro. These agents potentiated the cytotoxicity of the antitumor drugs Adriamycin, vinblastine, and vincristine in multidrug-resistant cells with no effect on drug-sensitive parent P388 cells. They significantly increased the ATP-dependent accumulation of(More)
Endothelins, 21-amino acid peptides involved in the pathogenesis of various diseases, bind to endothelin ET(A) and ET(B) receptors to initiate their effects. Here, we characterize the pharmacology of A-216546 ([2S-(2,2-dimethylpentyl)-4S-(7-methoxy-1,3-benzodioxol-5-yl )-1-(N,N-di(n-butyl) aminocarbonylmethyl)-pyrrolidine-3R-carboxylic acid), a potent(More)
