It was found that 3-(aminomethyl)quinoline derivatives showed high binding affinities for melanin-concentrating hormone receptor 1 (MCHR1) with reduced affinity for serotonin receptor 2c (5-HT2c) when the dihydronaphthalene nucleus of compound 1 (human MCHR1, IC(50) = 1.9 nM; human 5-HT2c receptor, IC(50) = 0.53 nM) was replaced by other bicyclic core(More)
Human melanin-concentrating hormone receptor 1 (hMCHR1) antagonists are promising targets for obesity treatment. We identified the tetrahydronaphthalene derivative 1a with modest binding affinity for hMCHR1 by screening an in-house G protein-coupled receptor (GPCR) ligand library. We synthesized a series of 6-aminomethyl-5,6,7,8-tetrahydronaphthalenes and(More)
Melanin-concentrating hormone receptor 1 (MCHR1) antagonists have been studied as potential agents for the treatment of obesity. Initial structure-activity relationship studies of in-house hit compound 1a and subsequent optimization studies resulted in the identification of tetrahydroisoquinoline derivative 23,(More)
Recently, we discovered 3-aminomethylquinoline derivative 1, a selective, highly potent, centrally acting, and orally bioavailable human MCH receptor 1 (hMCHR1) antagonist, that inhibited food intake in F344 rats with diet-induced obesity (DIO). Subsequent investigation of 1 was discontinued because 1 showed potent hERG K(+) channel inhibition in a(More)
The risk of myopathy and rhabdomyolysis is considerably increased in statin users with end-stage renal failure (ESRF). Uremic toxins, which accumulate in patients with ESRF, exert cytotoxic effects that are mediated by various mechanisms. Therefore, accumulation of uremic toxins might increase statin-induced cytotoxicity. The purpose of this study was to(More)
