Novel arylpiperazine derivatives bearing lipophilic probes were designed, synthesized, and evaluated for their potential ability to interact with the 5-hydroxytryptamine(3) (5-HT(3)) receptor. Most of the new compounds show subnanomolar 5-HT(3) receptor affinity. Ester 6bc showing a picomolar K(i) value is one of the most potent 5-HT(3) receptor ligands so(More)
The serotonin 5-HT3 receptor is a ligand-gated ion channel, which by virtue of its pentameric architecture, can be considered to be an intriguing example of intrinsically multivalent biological receptors. This paper describes a general design approach to the study of multivalency in this multimeric ion channel. Bivalent ligands for 5-HT3 receptor have been(More)
A new class of serotonin 5-HT1A receptor ligands related to NAN-190, buspirone and aripiprazole has been designed using our potent 5-HT3 receptor ligands as templates. The designed pyrrolidone derivatives 10a-n were prepared by means of the straightforward chemistry consisting in the reaction of the appropriate γ-haloester derivatives with the suitable(More)
