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)
New orally active non-terpenoic inhibitors of human 2,3-oxidosqualene cyclase (hOSC) are reported. The starting point for the optimization process was a set of compounds derived from a fungicide project, which in addition to showing high affinity for OSC from Candida albicans showed also high affinity for human OSC. Common structural elements of these(More)
Small molecule mGluR1 enhancers, which are 9H-xanthene-9-carboxylic acid [1,2,4]oxadiazol-3-yl- and (2H-tetrazol-5-yl)-amides, have been previously reported. Fluorinated 9H-xanthene-9-carboxylic acid oxazol-2-yl-amides with improved pharmacokinetic properties have been designed and synthesized as useful pharmacological tools for the study of the(More)
The GlyT1 transporter has emerged as a key novel target for the treatment of schizophrenia. Herein, we report on the optimization of the 2-alkoxy-5-methylsulfonebenzoylpiperazine class of GlyT1 inhibitors to improve hERG channel selectivity and brain penetration. This effort culminated in the discovery of compound 10a (RG1678), the first potent and(More)
We have synthesized several 4-aminoquinolines with shortened side chains that retain activity against chloroquine-resistant isolates of Plasmodium falciparum malaria (W. Hofheinz, C. Jaquet, and S. Jolidon, European patent 94116281.0, June 1995). We report here an assessment of the activities of four selected compounds containing ethyl, propyl, and(More)
We herein report the discovery of a new γ-secretase modulator class with an aminothiazole core starting from a HTS hit (3). Synthesis and SAR of this series are discussed. These novel compounds demonstrate moderate to good in vitro potency in inhibiting amyloid beta (Aβ) peptide production. Overall γ-secretase is not inhibited but the formation of the(More)
Screening of the Roche compound library led to the identification of the benzoylpiperazine 7 as a structurally novel GlyT1 inhibitor. The SAR which was developed in this series resulted in the discovery of highly potent compounds displaying excellent selectivity against the GlyT2 isoform, drug-like properties, and in vivo efficacy after oral administration.
A novel class of 4-substituted-8-(1-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. These(More)
