The biochemical and behavioral effects of a nonpeptidic, selective, and brain-penetrant agonist at the ORL1 receptor are reported herein. This low molecular weight compound [(1S,3aS)-8- (2,3,3a,4,5, 6-hexahydro-1H-phenalen-1-yl)-1-phenyl-1,3,8-triaza- spiro[4. 5]decan-4-one] has high affinity for recombinant human ORL1 receptors and has 100-fold selectivity(More)
Ro 63-1908, 1-[2-(4-hydroxy-phenoxy)-ethyl]-4-(4-methyl-benzyl)-piperidin-4-ol, is a novel subtype-selective N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA) antagonist that has been characterized in vitro and in vivo. Ro 63-1908 inhibited [(3)H]dizocilpine ((3)H-MK-801) binding in a biphasic manner with IC(50) values of 0.002 and 97 microM for the high- and low-affinity sites,(More)
The development of 8-(2,3,3a,4,5, 6-hexahydro-1H-phenalen1-yl)-1-phenyl-1,3,8-triaza-spiro[4. 5]decan-4-ones 3 starting from (RS)-8-acenaphten-1-yl-1-phenyl-1,3, 8-triazaspiro[4.5]decan-4-one 1 is reported. The synthesis and the binding affinities at human OFQ and opioid (micro, kappa, delta) receptors of the stereoisomers 3a-f are described. In vitro the(More)
A series of 8-acenaphthen-1-yl-1-phenyl-1,3,8-triaza-spiro[4.5]decan+ ++-4-one derivatives 1 was studied with respect to the binding affinity for the orphanin FQ (OFQ) and opioid (mu, kappa, delta) receptors. The influence of stereochemistry as well as the substitution pattern of the phenyl-ring in position 1 on the affinity for the orphanin FQ receptor and(More)
Synthesis and evaluation of the activity of new 4-methyl-1,2,3,4,10,10a-hexahydropyrazino[1,2-a]indoles as 5-HT(2C) receptor agonists are described. Appropriately substituted, several analogs displayed selectivity against the other 5-HT(2) receptor subtypes of 1 order of magnitude or more. Selectivity was improved for several compounds versus the lead 1,(More)
