Buspirone is a lipophilic, dibasic heterocyclic with no structural resemblance to other anxiolytic or antipsychotic agents. Neurochemical binding studies suggest that buspirone has both dopamine agonist and antagonist properties. Structural comparisons with (+)-butaclamol indicate that buspirone possesses features required for binding at the postsynaptic(More)
Members of the series of title compounds were tested for potential antipsychotic activity in relevant receptor binding assays and behavioral screens. Structure-activity relationships within the series are discussed. Compound 24 (BMY 13859-1), a (1,2-benzisothiazol-3-yl)piperazine derivative, was selected for further study because of its potent and selective(More)
Two new arylpiperazine derivatives, the 4-(1-piperazinyl)thieno- and -furo[3,2-c]pyridine ring systems, have been synthesized and appended via tetramethylene chains to various imide rings. Target compounds from each series were found to have significant activity in the blockade of apomorphine stereotypy and apomorphine-induced climbing, the Sidman avoidance(More)
A series of 3-substituted 2-pyridinyl-1-piperazine derivatives have been appended to cyclic imide groups and evaluated for their potential antipsychotic activity. The dopamine receptor affinities of these target molecules, as well as their ability to block apomorphine-induced stereotypy or reverse neuroleptic-induced catalepsy, was dependent on the(More)
