180,291 1S-(1 alpha, 2 alpha, 3 alpha, 4 alpha)-2-[[3-[4- [(pentylamino)carbonyl]-2-oxazolyl]-7-oxabicyclo[2.2.1]hept- 2- yl]methyl]benzenepropanoic acid (BMS) is a potent and highly selective antagonist of thromboxane A2/prostaglandin endoperoxide (TP) receptors. In human platelet-rich plasma, BMS 180,291 inhibited platelet aggregation induced by(More)
DuP 753 is a potent, selective angiotensin II type 1 (AT1) receptor antagonist. The possibility was investigated that DuP 753 may crossreact with thromboxane A2/prostaglandin H2 (TP) receptors. DuP 753 inhibited the specific binding of the TP receptor antagonist [3H]SQ 29,548 (5 nM) in human platelets with kd/slope factor values of 9.6 +/- 1.4 microM/1.1(More)
An imidazolylpyrimidine was identified in a CXCR2 chemokine receptor antagonist screen and was optimized for potency, in vitro metabolic stability, and oral bioavailability. It was found that subtle structural modification within the series affected the oral bioavailability. Potent and orally available CXCR2 antagonists are herein reported.
Binding and function of BMS 180,291 ([(+)1S-(1 alpha,2 alpha,3 alpha,4 alpha)]-2-[[3-[4-[(n-pentylamino)carbonyl]-2-oxazolyl]-7- oxabicyclo[2.2.1] hept-2-yl]methyl]benzenepropanoic acid]) in human platelets was examined. Kinetic determination of [3H]BMS 180,291 binding produced ligand-receptor association and dissociation rates of 1.4 x 10(7) +/- 0.2 M-1 x(More)
At the time of writing, there are seven marketed kinase inhibitor drugs. The first kinase inhibitor, imatinib mesilate (Gleevec, Novartis), came to market in 2001, an inhibitor of the breakpoint cluster region (BCR)/Abelson murine leukemia oncogene homolog (ABL) fusion, platelet-derived growth factor (PDGF) receptor, and c-kit kinases. The most recent(More)
With the advent of the first generation of both selective and nonselective endothelin antagonists being a relatively recent event, the manifold therapeutic potentials of these compounds are only now being explored clinically. Undoubtedly, numerous clinical utilities for these compounds will soon be realized.
The effect of in-house transport on plasma corticosterone concentration and blood lymphocyte populations of laboratory mice was investigated. Mice were transported within a research facility at 0900 hours in a pattern designed to simulate that commonly used by investigators prior to experimental manipulation. Plasma corticosterone concentration and WBC(More)
The purpose of this study was to examine the specificity of the cyclic pentapeptide ET(A) receptor antagonist BQ-123. BQ-123 competitively antagonized endothelin-1-induced contractions in rabbit aorta, increases in inositol phosphates in cultured rat vascular smooth muscle A10 cells, and binding of [125I]endothelin-1 to the cloned ETA receptor cDNA(More)
In a high-throughput screen of four million compounds from combinatorial libraries for small-molecule modulators of the chemokine receptor CXCR3, two classes of receptor agonists, based on tetrahydroisoquinoline and piperidinyl diazepanone templates, were identified. Several of these compounds stimulated calcium flux in HEK293 cells expressing the(More)
Endothelin (ET) has been shown to activate mitogen-activated protein kinase (MAPK). However, it has been unclear which of the ET receptors is coupled to MAPK activation. In the present study, we conducted experiments to determine which ET receptor is linked to MAPK activation. We found that both human ETA and ETB were coupled to the MAPK cascade in ETA or(More)
