Diverse series of piperazines linked at N1 to 4, 5, or 6 positions of 3-(2H)-pyridazinone ring and at N4, by a suitable alkyl spacer, to some classical alpha1-adrenoceptor pharmacophore moieties, were tested in vitro for their alpha1-adrenoceptor antagonist activity. The modeling of their biological activity (pKb) by comparative molecular field analysis led(More)
A large series of 2-aryl(heteroaryl)-2,5-dihydropyrazolo[4,3-c]quinolin- 3-(3H)-ones, carrying appropriate substituents at the quinoline and N2-phenyl rings, were prepared and tested as central benzodiazepine receptor ligands. Results from structure-affinity relationship studies were in full agreement with previously proposed pharmacophore models and, in(More)
2-(1-Piperazinyl)-4H-pyrido[1,2-a]pyrimidin-4-one (5a) is a recently described in vitro inhibitor of human platelet aggregation which specifically inhibits the activity of high affinity cAMP phosphodiesterase. A number of substitution derivatives, isosteres, and analogues of 5a were now synthesized and tested in vitro for their inhibitory activity on human(More)
A large series of 2-aryl(heteroaryl)-2,5-dihydropyrazolo[4,3-c]quinolin-3(3H)-ones (PQ, 106 compounds), carrying appropriate substituents at the quinoline and N2-phenyl rings, were designed, prepared and tested as central benzodiazepine receptor ligands. Compounds with an affinity significantly higher than the parent compound CGS-8216 were obtained, the(More)
A series of 5-hydroxy- and 5,6-dihydroxy-1,2,3,7,12,12a-hexahydrobenzo[5,6]cyclohepta[1,2,3-ij]isoquinoline derivatives (5a--e and 6a--e) were synthesized as conformationally rigid analogues of 1-benzyltetrahydroisoquinoline and evaluated for their affinity at D(1) and D(2) dopamine receptors. All compounds showed lower D(1) and D(2) affinities than(More)
Different classes of Peripheral-type Benzodiazepine Receptor (PBR) ligands were examined and common structural elements were detected and used to develop a rational binding model based on energetically allowed ligand conformations. Two lipophilic regions and one electrostatic interaction site are essential features for high affinity ligand binding, while a(More)
