Alpha-amino-3-hydroxy-5-methyl-4-isoxazole-propionic acid (AMPA) type glutamate receptors are critical for synaptic plasticity and induction of long-term potentiation (LTP), considered as one of the synaptic mechanisms underlying learning and memory. Positive allosteric modulators of AMPA receptors could provide a therapeutic approach to the treatment of(More)
This paper describes the design and synthesis of a new class of molecules, the 3-sulfonylamino-2-(1H)-quinolones, which are potent and selective antagonists at both the AMPA/kainate site as well as at the NMDA-associated glycine site. The molecules were characterized by their binding affinities to rat cortical membranes and by electrophysiology on Xenopus(More)
