The present study describes the activity of two novel potent and selective AMPA receptor potentiator molecules LY392098 and LY404187. LY392098 and LY404187 enhance glutamate (100 microM) stimulated ion influx through recombinant homomeric human AMPA receptor ion channels, GluR1-4, with estimated EC(50) values of 1.77 microM (GluR1(i)), 0.22 microM(More)
LY395153 is a member of a newly described class of arylpropylsulfonamide AMPA receptor potentiators. Here, we characterize and compare [(3)H]LY395153 binding to native AMPA receptors from rat cerebral cortex and recombinant human GluR4(flip) receptors expressed in HEK293 cells. L-Glutamate and AMPA increased [(3)H]LY395153 binding to both native and(More)
A series of benzimidazoles (4) was synthesized and evaluated in vitro as potent and selective NPY Y1 receptor antagonists. Substitution of the piperidine nitrogen of 4 with appropriate R groups resulted in compounds with more than 80-fold higher affinity at the Y receptor compared to the parent compound 5 (R = H). The most potent benzimidazole in this(More)
A series of novel benzimidazoles (BI) derived from the indole 2 was synthesized and evaluated as selective neuropeptide Y (NPY) Y1 receptor antagonists with the aim of developing antiobesity drugs. In our SAR approach, the (4-chlorophenoxy)methyl group at C-2 was kept constant and a series of BIs substituted with various piperidinylalkyl groups at N-1 was(More)
The objective of the described research effort was to identify a novel serotonin and norepinephrine reuptake inhibitor (SNRI) with improved norepinephrine transporter activity and acceptable metabolic stability and exhibiting minimal drug-drug interaction. We describe herein the discovery of a series of 3-substituted pyrrolidines, exemplified by compound 1.(More)
The synthesis and structure-activity relationship (SAR) of novel and highly potent positive allosteric modulators of AMPA receptors, 3-biphenyl-4-yl-4-cyano-5-ethyl-1-methyl-1H-pyrrole-2-carboxylic acid, are described. These studies indicated that higher potency was achieved with ortho substitution of the distal (D) phenyl of the 3-biphenyl ring and(More)
A series of benzo[b]thiophene-derived NPY-1 receptor antagonists is described. Systematic modification of the C-2 substituent afforded a 1000-fold range in Y1 receptor affinity. Appropriate substitution at the ortho and para positions of the C-2 phenyl ether produced a synergistic effect on Y1 binding affinity, which led to the discovery of the most active(More)
The characterization of a novel series of NPY-1 receptor antagonists derived from the 4-methylbenzimidazole 4 is described. Appropriate substitution on the piperidyl nitrogen of 4 led to systematic increases in Y-1 receptor affinity, to approximately 50-fold, and to the discovery of the importance of a second basic substituent.
