Aromatic and heteroaromatic amines (ArNH(2)) represent a class of potential mutagens that after being metabolically activated covalently modify DNA. Activation of ArNH(2) in many cases starts with N-hydroxylation by P450 enzymes, primarily CYP1A2. Poor understanding of structure-mutagenicity relationships of ArNH(2) limits their use in drug discovery(More)
Recently the clinical importance of human organic cation transporters 1 (hOCT1/SLC22A1) and 2 (hOCT2/SLC22A2) in drug disposition, for example, clearance, toxicity, and drug-drug interactions, have been highlighted [Annu. Rev. Pharmacol. Toxicol. 2012, 52, 249-273; Nat. Rev. Drug Discovery 2010, 9 (3), 215-236]. Consequently, there is an extensive need for(More)
The metabolic stability and selectivity of a series of CCR8 antagonists against binding to the hERG ion channel and cytochrome Cyp2D6 are studied by principal component analysis. It is demonstrated that an efficient way of increasing metabolic stability and selectivity of this series is to decrease compound lipophilicity by engineering nondesolvation(More)
Although the anti-inflammatory role of the A2a receptor is well established, controversy remains with regard to the therapeutic value for A2a agonists in treatment of inflammatory lung diseases, also as a result of unwanted A2a-mediated cardiovascular effects. In this paper, we describe the discovery and characterization of a new, potent and selective A2a(More)
