We describe the preparation and evaluation of a novel series of glycine transporter 1 (GlyT1) inhibitors derived from a high-throughput screening hit. The SAR studies resulted in the discovery of 3-biphenyl-4-yl-4-(2-fluorophenyl)-5-isopropyl-4H-1,2,4-triazole (6p). A pharmacokinetic study was also conducted and revealed that 6p had excellent oral(More)
We report on the optimization of 4H-1,2,4-triazole derivatives to increase their activity and selectivity as glycine transporter 1 (GlyT1) inhibitors. Structure-activity relationship exploration resulted in the identification of a 3-[3-ethyl-5-(6-phenylpyridin-3-yl)-4H-1,2,4-triazol-4-yl]-2-methylbenzonitrile (14u) compound with markedly higher selectivity(More)
Hyperamylasemia was noted in a patient with a stage I well-differentiated endometrioid adenocarcinoma of the ovary. Serum levels of amylase decreased rapidly after removal of the ovarian tumor. Immunohistochemical study revealed intracytoplasmic localization of amylase in many tumor cells. Although it was strongly suspected that the tumor cells had produced(More)
An HTS campaign led to the identification of 4-pyrroldino-2-(pyridin-2-yl)pyrimidine compound 1 as an RANKL-induced osteoclastogenesis inhibitor. The compound 1 showed high clearance values in microsomes, however. Modification of the pyrrolidino group to a benzylamino group improved human microsomal stability with a slight loss of in vitro activity.(More)
To identify novel glycine transporter 1(GlyT1) inhibitors with greater selectivity relative to GlyT2 and improved aqueous solubility, we synthesized a series of 4H-1,2,4-triazole derivatives with heteroaromatic rings at the 4-position and investigated their structure-activity relationships. Replacement of the 2-fluorophenyl group of lead compound 5 with(More)
