A novel series of arylcyclopropanecarboxyl guanidines was synthesized and evaluated for activity against the sodium hydrogen exchanger isoform-1 (NHE-1). In biological assays conducted in an AP1 cell line expressing the human NHE-1 isoform, the starting cyclopropane 3a (IC(50) = 3.5 microM) shows inhibitory activity comparable to cariporide (IC(50) = 3.4(More)
A series of potent inhibitors of the sodium hydrogen exchanger-1 (NHE-1) is described. Structure-activity relationships identified the 3-methyl-4-fluoro analog 9t as a highly potent (IC50 = 0.0065 microM) and selective (NHE-2/NHE-1=1400) non-acylguanidine NHE-1 inhibitor. Pharmacokinetic studies showed that compound 9t has an oral bioavailability of 52% and(More)
Multiple delayed rectifier potassium currents, including I(Ks), are responsible for the repolarization and termination of the cardiac action potential, and blockers of these currents may be useful as antiarrhythmic agents. Modification of compound 5 produced 19(S) that is the most potent I(Ks) blocker reported to date with >5000-fold selectivity over other(More)
A series of 2,2-dimethyl-3,3-diphenyl-propanamides as novel glucocorticoid receptor modulators is reported. SAR exploration led to the identification of 4-hydroxyphenyl propanamide derivatives displaying good agonist activity in GR-mediated transrepression assays and reduced agonist activity in GR-mediated transactivation assays. Compounds 17 and 30 showed(More)
A series of dihydro-9,10-ethano-anthracene-11-carboxamides as novel glucocorticoid receptor modulators is reported. SAR exploration identified compounds from this series displaying a promising dissociation profile in discriminating between transrepression and transactivation activities. 17a is a partial agonist of GR-mediated transactivation which elicits(More)
Synthesis of a series of alpha-hydroxythiol esters made available, for the first time, product-like molecules that were evaluated as inhibitors of the enzyme glyoxalase I and as potential antitumor agents. All the alpha-hydroxythiol esters tested were competitive inhibitors of the enzyme, albeit weak; however, the relative [I]50 values suggested information(More)
Humankind has been in the business of discovering drugs for thousands of years. At present, small-molecule drug design is based on specific macromolecular receptors as targets for inhibition or modulation. To this end, a number of clever approaches have evolved over time: computer-aided techniques including structure-activity relationships and synthesis,(More)
A new class of Janus kinase (JAK) inhibitors was discovered using a rationally designed pyrrolo[1,2-b]pyridazine-3-carboxamide scaffold. Preliminary studies identified (R)-(2,2-dimethylcyclopentyl)amine as a preferred C4 substituent on the pyrrolopyridazine core (3b). Incorporation of amino group to 3-position of the cyclopentane ring resulted in a series(More)
Class III anti-arrhythmic drugs (e.g., dofetilide) prolong cardiac action potential duration (APD) by blocking the fast component of the delayed rectifier potassium current (I(Kr)). The block of I(Kr) can result in life threatening ventricular arrhythmias (i.e., torsades de pointes). Unlike I(Kr), the role of the slow component of the delayed rectifier(More)
A series of substituted guanidine derivatives were prepared and evaluated as potent and selective inhibitors of mitochondrial F(1)F(0) ATP hydrolase. The initial thiourethane derived lead molecules possessed intriguing in vitro pharmacological profiles, though contained moieties considered non-drug-like. Analogue synthesis efforts led to compounds with(More)
