A series of novel 8-sulfonyl-substituted 2,3,4,5-tetrahydro-1H-pyrido[4,3-b]indoles (THPI) has been synthesized and their ability to interact with 5-HT(6) receptors evaluated in cell-based and radioligand binding assays. Amongst evaluated THPIs, compounds 9.HCl and 20.HCl have been identified as the most potent 5-HT(6) receptor antagonists with K(i) values(More)
Dimebon, originally developed as an anti-histamine drug, is being re-purposed for new indications as an effective treatment for patients suffering from Alzheimer's and Huntington's diseases, albeit with an as-yet unknown mechanism of action. We have performed molecular pharmacology profiling of this drug on a panel of 70 targets to characterize the spectrum(More)
Syntheses, biological evaluation as 5-HT(6) receptor (5-HT(6)R) antagonists, and structure-activity relationships for a series of novel 5,7-disubstituted (3-arylsulfonyl-pyrazolo[1,5-a]pyrimidins are disclosed. The molecule conformational flexibility in the series is restricted by formation of the intramolecular hydrogen bond between 3-sulfo and(More)
A number of 3-(phenylsulfonyl)thieno[2,3-e][1,2,3]triazolo[1,5-a]pyrimidines were prepared and their 5-HT6 receptor binding affinity and ability to inhibit the functional cellular responses to serotonin were evaluated. 3-[(3-chlorophenyl)sulfonyl]-N-(tetrahydrofuran-2-ylmethyl)thieno[2,3-e][1,2,3]triazolo[1,5-a]pyrimidin-5-amine 2{5,26} appeared to be the(More)
Syntheses, biological evaluation, and structure-activity relationships for a series of novel 2-substituted 3-benzenesulfonyl-5,6-dimethyl-pyrazolo[1,5-a]pyrimidines are disclosed. In spite of a wide, four orders of magnitude, SAR range (K(i) varied from 260 pM to 2.96 μM), no significant correlation of 5-HT(6)R antagonistic potency was observed with major(More)
In continuation of studies on 3-(phenylsulfonyl)pyrazolo[1,5-a]pyrimidine derivatives as 5-HT6 receptor antagonists, new compounds with a pyridine moiety in the 5-and/or 7-position were obtained and their antagonistic activity was screened. It was established that the introduced pyridine changed the 5-HT6 activity. Some of the obtained(More)
Synthesis, biological evaluation and structure-activity relationships for a series of novel gamma-carboline analogues of Dimebon are described. Among the studied compounds, gamma-carbolines 3{8} and 3{14} have been identified as potent small molecule antagonists of histamine H(1) (IC(50)=0.1 microM) and serotonin 5-HT(6) (IC(50)=0.37 microM) receptors,(More)
OBJECTIVES Development of a novel drug candidate with improved potency against influenza virus neuraminidase compared with currently available therapeutics, and high activity against oseltamivir-resistant viruses. METHODS A number of synthetic compounds were evaluated for antiviral properties in vitro and in vivo. Three-dimensional molecular docking,(More)
Syntheses, biological evaluation, and structure-activity relationships for a series of novel 5-styryl and 5-phenethyl analogs of dimebolin are disclosed. The novel derivatives and dimebolin share a broad spectrum of activities against therapeutically relevant targets. Among all synthesized derivatives,(More)
