WAY-161503 ((4aR)-8,9-dichloro-2,3,4,4a-tetrahydro-1H-pyrazino[1,2-a]quinoxalin-5(6H)-one), a 5-HT(2B/C) receptor agonist, was characterized in vitro using stable Chinese hamster ovary cell lines expressing each of the human 5-HT2 receptors and in vivo in animal models of obesity. WAY-161503 displaced both agonist ([125I]2,5-dimethoxy-4-iodoamphetamine(More)
The pharmacological profile of WAY-163909 [(7bR, 10aR)-1,2,3,4,8,9,10,10a-octahydro-7bH-cyclopenta-[b][1,4]diazepino[6,7,1hi]indole], a novel 5-hydroxytryptamine (HT)(2C) (serotonin) receptor-selective agonist is presented. WAY-163909 displaced [(125)I]2,5-dimethoxy-4-iodoamphetamine binding from human 5-HT(2C) receptor sites, in Chinese hamster ovary (CHO)(More)
The 5-hydroxytryptamine 2C (5-HT(2C)) receptor subtype has received considerable attention as a target for drug discovery, having been implicated in a wide variety of disorders. Here, we describe the in vitro pharmacological profile of the novel 5-HT(2C) receptor-selective agonist vabicaserin [(-)-4,5,6,7,9,9a,10,11,12,12a-decahydrocyclopenta[c](More)
Synthesis and SAR of N-[4-[(4,5-dihydropyrazolo[3,4-d]thieno[3,2-b]azepin-6(2H)-y l)carbonyl]phenyl]benzamides as arginine vasopressin (AVP) receptor antagonists are discussed. Potent orally active AVP receptor antagonists are produced when the benzamide moiety contains a phenyl group at the 2-position. Similar analogues of(More)
A series of 2,3,4,4a-tetrahydro-1H-pyrazino[1,2-a]quinoxalin-5-(6H)ones and 2,3,4,4a,5,6-hexahydro-1H-pyrazino[1,2-a]quinoxalines was shown to exhibit 5-HT2C agonist binding and functional activity. Compound 21R inhibited food intake over 2 h in fasted, male Sprague Dawley rats with ED50 values of 2 mg/kg (i.p.) and 10 mg/kg (p.o.).
A series of 2-(aminomethyl)chromans (2-AMCs) was synthesized and evaluated for their affinity and selectivity for both the high- and low-affinity agonist states (D2High and D2Low, respectively) of the dopamine (DA) D2 receptor. The 7-hydroxy-2-(aminomethyl)chroman moiety was observed to be the primary D2 agonist pharmacophore. The 2-methylchroman moiety was(More)
The synthesis of several bioisosteric analogs based on the 3-OH-N1-phenylpiperazine dopamine D2 agonist template (i.e., 4) is described. The indolone (5) and 2-CF3-benzimidazole (13) were observed to have excellent affinity for the D2 receptor. Several D4 selective compounds were also identified. Molecular modeling studies and a putative bioactive(More)
Several series of conformationally constrained N1-arylsulfonyltryptamine derivatives were prepared and tested for 5-HT6 receptor binding affinity and ability to modulate cAMP production in a cyclase assay. The 3-piperidin-3-yl-, 3-(1-methylpyrrolidin-2-ylmethyl)-, and 3-pyrrolidin-3-yl-1H-indole arrays (8-13) appear to be able to adopt a conformation that(More)
