The [1,2,4]triazolo[1,5-a]triazine derivative 3, more commonly known in the field of adenosine research as ZM-241385, has previously been demonstrated to be a potent and selective adenosine A2a receptor antagonist, although with limited oral bioavailability. This [1,2,4]triazolo[1,5-a]triazine core structure has now been improved by incorporating various(More)
The objectives of the study were to characterize the selectivity of dantrolene to breast cancer resistance protein (Bcrp) and to evaluate whether cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) can be used as a surrogate to assess brain exposures of BCRP and P-glycoprotein (Pgp) substrates. The impact of Bcrp and Pgp on dantrolene exposures in brain and CSF was examined in Bcrp(More)
Piperazine derivatives of 2-furanyl[1,2,4]triazolo[1,5-a][1,3,5]triazine have recently been demonstrated to be potent and selective adenosine A(2a) receptor antagonists with oral activity in rodent models of Parkinson's disease. We have replaced the piperazinyl group with a variety of linear, monocyclic, and bicyclic diamines. Of these diamines,(More)
Modifying FTY720, an immunosuppressant modulator, led to a new series of well phosphorylated tetralin analogs as potent S1P1 receptor agonists. The stereochemistry effect of tetralin ring was probed, and (-)-(R)-2-amino-2-((S)-6-octyl-1,2,3,4-tetrahydronaphthalen-2-yl)propan-1-ol was identified as a good SphK2 substrate and potent S1P1 agonist with good(More)
The 4-(5-fluoro-6-methyl-pyridin-2-yl)-5-quinoxalin-6-yl-1H-imidazol-2-ylamine 3 is a potent and selective inhibitor of TGF-betaR1. Substitution of the amino group of 3 typically led to a slight decrease in the affinity for the receptor and in TGF-beta-inducted PAI-luciferase reporter activity. However, 2-acetamidoimidazoles were identified as attractive(More)
