A series of enaminone esters and amides have been developed as potent allosteric modulators of gamma-aminobutyric acidA (GABAA) receptors. The compounds bind to a novel modulatory site that is independent of the benzodiazepine (BZ), isosteric GABA, and neuroactive steroid binding sites. Structure-activity relationship (SAR) studies resulted in the synthesis(More)
UNLABELLED Nicotine alpha(4)beta(2) receptor subtypes are implicated in the study of Alzheimer's disease, schizophrenia, substance abuse, lung cancer, and other disorders. We report the development and evaluation of a putative antagonist, 5-(3'-fluoropropyl)-3-(2-(S)-pyrrolidinylmethoxy)pyridine (nifrolidine) as a PET agent for nicotine alpha(4)beta(2)(More)
GABA(A) receptor (R) positive allosteric modulators that selectively modulate GABA(A)Rs containing beta(2)- and/or beta(3)- over beta(1)-subunits have been reported across diverse chemotypes. Examples include loreclezole, mefenamic acid, tracazolate, and etifoxine. In general,"beta(2/3)-selective" GABA(A)R positive allosteric modulators are(More)
