The structure-activity relationships of xanthine derivatives related to the adenosine A(1) receptor antagonists 8-cyclopentyl-1,3-dipropylxanthine (DPCPX) and 1,3-dipropyl-8-(3-noradamantyl)xanthine (KW3902) were investigated by focusing on variations of the 3-substituent. Aromatic residues were well tolerated by the A(1) receptor in that position. A(More)
A series of tricyclic imidazo[2,1-i]purinones and ring-enlarged analogues derived from xanthine derivatives have been prepared as adenosine receptor (AR) antagonists. In comparison with xanthines, the tricyclic compounds exhibit increased water solubility due to a basic nitrogen atom, which can be protonated under physiological conditions. Substituents were(More)
Structure-activity relationships of 2-phenyl-imidazo[2,1-i]purin-5-ones as ligands for human A(3) adenosine receptors (ARs) were investigated. An ethyl group in the 8-position of the imidazoline ring of 4-methyl-2-phenyl-imidazopurinone leading to chiral compounds was found to increase affinity for human A(3) ARs by several thousand-fold. Propyl(More)
This study describes the preparation and binding properties of [(3)H]PSB-11, a novel, potent, and selective antagonist radioligand for human A(3) adenosine receptors (ARs). [(3)H]PSB-11 binding to membranes of Chinese hamster ovary (CHO) cells expressing the human A(3) AR was saturable and reversible. Saturation experiments showed that [(3)H]PSB-11 labeled(More)
Adenosine A2B receptors of native human and rodent cell lines were investigated using [3H]PSB-298 [(8-{4-[2-(2-hydroxyethylamino)-2-oxoethoxy]phenyl}-1-propylxanthine] in radioligand binding studies. [3H]PSB-298 showed saturable and reversible binding. It exhibited a KD value of 60 ± 1 nM and limited capacity (Bmax = 3.511 fmol per milligram protein) at(More)
The Swiss fine chemicals company Bachem, pioneer and specialist in the chemical synthesis of peptides, has also become an internationally leading manufacturer of peptide active pharmaceutical ingredients (APIs). In response to increasing demands in scale and purity, Bachem's research efforts centered on the chemistry involved in solid-phase peptide(More)
