We have identified two chemical series of compounds acting as selective positive allosteric modulators (enhancers) of native and recombinant metabotropic glutamate 1 (mGlu1) receptors. These compounds did not directly activate mGlu1 receptors but markedly potentiated agonist-stimulated responses, increasing potency and maximum efficacy. Binding of these(More)
A single amino acid substitution, Phe98 to Tyr98, in dihydrofolate reductase (DHFR) is the molecular origin of trimethoprim (TMP) resistance in Staphylococcus aureus. This active site amino acid substitution was found in all S. aureus TMP-resistant clinical isolates tested. In order to explore the structural role of Tyr98 in TMP-resistance the ternary(More)
A novel class of 4-substituted-8-(2-phenyl-cyclohexyl)-2,8-diaza-spiro[4.5]decan-1-ones have been discovered and developed as potent and selective GlyT1 inhibitors. The molecules are devoid of activity at the GlyT2 isoform and display excellent selectivities against the mu opioid receptor as well as the nociceptin/orphanin FQ peptide (NOP) receptor. A(More)
