On the basis of a Janssen's patent, we approached a new synthesis of some 1,3,5-triazin-4,6-diones as potential non peptidic prokineticin receptor antagonists, containing the following substitutions: (N(1) and N(5) link a 4-methoxybenzyl and a 4-ethylbenzyl, respectively; C(2) can link an amino-ethyl-guanidine (reference compound 1) or an ethylendiamine (2)(More)
A new and convenient stereocontrolled synthesis of the optically pure (S)-α-methyl,α-amino acids 6(a–d) that exploits the chiral synthon 1,4-N,N-[(S)-1-phenylethyl]-piperazine-2,5-dione (1) is described. The (S)-1-phenylethyl group, bonded to each of the N-atoms of the 2,5-diketopiperazine, acts as a chiral inductor in the first alkylation, while the steric(More)
Here we report the synthesis and biological properties of peptide-based molecules bearing constrained analogues of phenylalanine at the C-terminal. Compounds were tested as proteasome subunits' inhibitors. Dehydro-peptides showed good inhibition, in particular against trypsin-like (T-L) proteasome activity while some C-terminal Tic-derivatives inhibit only(More)
A wide range of activities are induced by Lys when introduced at C-terminus of the delta-opioid Dmt-Tic pharmacophore through the alpha-amine group, including: improved delta-antagonism, mu-agonism and mu-antagonism. Here we report the synthesis of a new series of compounds with the general formula H-Dmt-Tic-NH-(CH(2))(4)-CH(R)-R' (R=-NH(2), -NH-Ac, -NH-Z;(More)
Twelve derivatives of the nociceptin/orphanin FQ (N/OFQ) receptor (NOP) antagonist 1-benzyl-N-{3-[spiroisobenzofuran-1(3H),4'-piperidin-1-yl]propyl} pyrrolidine-2-carboxamide (Comp 24) were synthesized and tested in binding experiments performed on CHO(hNOP) cell membranes. Among them, a novel interesting NOP receptor antagonist (compound 35) was identified(More)
