Here we report the discovery, by high-throughput screening, of three novel (2-amino-5-keto)thiazole compounds that act as selective potentiators of nicotinic acetylcholine receptors. Compound selectivity was assessed at seven human nicotinic acetylcholine receptors (alpha1beta1gammadelta, alpha2beta4, alpha3beta2, alpha3beta4, alpha4beta2, alpha4beta4, and(More)
Tricyclic isoxazoles were identified from a screen as a novel class of selective multidrug resistance protein (MRP1) inhibitors. From a screen lead, SAR efforts resulted in the preparation of LY 402913 (9h), which inhibits MRP1 and reverses drug resistance to MRP1 substrates, such as doxorubicin, in HeLa-T5 cells (EC(50)=0.90 microM), while showing no(More)
The disclosed 3-phenyl-5-isothiazole carboxamides are potent allosteric antagonists of mGluR1 with generally good selectivity relative to the related group 1 receptor mGluR5. Pharmacokinetic properties of a member of this series (1R,2R)-N-(3-(4-methoxyphenyl)-4-methylisothiazol-5-yl)-2-methylcyclopropanecarboxamide (14) are good, showing acceptable plasma(More)
A (the sum of double-bond covalent radii for carbon is 1.334 A). In (1), the cyclopentene ring is planar within 0.008 A. In (2), the cyclohexene ring is not planar, with C(4) 0.69 A out of the plane of C(2), C(3), C(5), C(6) and C(11). Abstract. for 1362 observed reflections. The CO2Me and CH2CO2Me groups attached to C(3) and C(5) are both equatorial and(More)
Transmembrane AMPA receptor regulatory proteins (TARPs) are a family of scaffolding proteins that regulate AMPA receptor trafficking and function. TARP γ-8 is one member of this family and is highly expressed within the hippocampus relative to the cerebellum. A selective TARP γ-8-dependent AMPA receptor antagonist (TDAA) is an innovative approach to(More)
A focused screening strategy identified thienopyrimidine 1 as a hCB2 cannabinoid receptor agonist with moderate selectivity over the hCB1 receptor. This initial hit suffered from poor in vitro metabolic stability and high in vivo clearance. Structure-activity relationships describe the optimization and modification to a less lipophilic purine core. Examples(More)
A focused screening strategy identified thienopyrimidine 12 as a cannabinoid receptor type 2 agonist (hCB2) with moderate selectivity over the hCB1 receptor. This initial hit suffered from poor in vitro metabolic stability and high in vivo clearance. Structure-activity relationships describe the optimization and modification to a new more polar series of(More)
A novel series of selective negative allosteric modulators (NAMs) for metabotropic glutamate receptor 5 (mGlu5) was discovered from an isothiazole scaffold. One compound of this series, (1R,2R)-N-(4-(6-isopropylpyridin-2-yl)-3-(2-methyl-2H-indazol-5-yl)isothiazol-5-yl)-2-methylcyclopropanecarboxamide (24), demonstrated satisfactory pharmacokinetic(More)
A series of analogues of the protein kinase C (PKC) inhibitory natural product balanol which bear modified benzophenone subunits are described. The analogues were designed with the goal of uncovering structure-activity features that could be used in the development of PKC inhibitors with a reduced polar character compared to balanol itself. The results of(More)
Osteoarthritis (OA) and the associated joint pain are highly prevalent and a leading cause of disability. We have previously reported the identification of a series of purines as selective CB2 agonists and the identification of compound 1 as a clinical candidate for the treatment of joint pain. In this article we describe the further SAR development of the(More)
