The cyclopyrrolone pagoclone binds with roughly equivalent high affinity (0.7-9.1nM) to the benzodiazepine binding site of human recombinant GABA(A) receptors containing either an alpha1, alpha2, alpha3 or alpha5 subunit. However, whereas it was a partial agonist at alpha1-, alpha2- and alpha5-containing GABA(A) receptors, pagoclone was a full agonist at(More)
The identification of a series of imidazo[1,2-b][1,2,4]triazines with high affinity and functional selectivity for the GABA(A) alpha3-containing receptor subtype is described, leading to the identification of a clinical candidate, 11. Compound 11 shows good bioavailability and half-life in preclinical species, and it is a nonsedating anxiolytic in both rat(More)
Small-cell lung cancer (SCLC) can produce numerous mitogenic neuropeptides, which are not found in normal respiratory epithelium. Arginine vasopressin is detected in up to two-thirds of SCLC tumours whereas normal physiological expression is essentially restricted to the hypothalamus. This presents the opportunity to identify elements of the gene promoter(More)
