We have determined the exon-intron organization and the nucleotide sequence of the exons and their flanking intronic DNA in cloned genomic DNA that encodes the first 526 amino acids of the alpha I domain of the human red cell spectrin polypeptide chain. From the gene sequence we designed oligonucleotide primers to use in the polymerase chain reaction(More)
A series of 5-(4-biphenyl)-3-methyl-4-phenyl-1,2,4-triazole derivatives were prepared and evaluated as selective antagonists for the human vasopressin V(1A) receptor. The compounds were examined for their affinity to the cloned human V(1A) receptor (hV(1A)) and selectivity vs the cloned human V(2) receptor (hV(2)). By utilizing the structure-activity(More)
We describe the preparation and evaluation of a novel series of glycine transporter 1 (GlyT1) inhibitors derived from a high-throughput screening hit. The SAR studies resulted in the discovery of 3-biphenyl-4-yl-4-(2-fluorophenyl)-5-isopropyl-4H-1,2,4-triazole (6p). A pharmacokinetic study was also conducted and revealed that 6p had excellent oral(More)
A questionnaire survey on periodic health checkup was conducted on 4,432 manufacturing factories in Kawasaki and the following results were obtained. 1) Implementation rate of periodic health checkup was 100% in factories with 100 workers or more. In smaller factories employing less than 100 workers, the implementation rate decreased with decrease in their(More)
To find potent and selective antagonists of the arginine vasopressin (AVP) V1A receptor, optimization studies of compounds structurally related to (Z)-N-{4'-[(4,4-difluoro-5-carbamoylmethylidene-2,3,4,5-tetrahydro-1H-1-benzazepin-1-yl)carbonyl]phenyl}carboxamide were performed. The synthesis and pharmacological properties of these compounds are described.(More)
In the search for a novel class of selective antagonists for the human V(1A) receptor, high-throughput screening (HTS) of the Yamanouchi chemical library using CHO cells expressing the cloned human V(1A) (hV(1A)) receptor led to the discovery of 5-(4-biphenyl)-4-(2-methoxyphenyl)-3-methyl-1,2,4-triazole (3) which possessed the novel(More)
To identify novel glycine transporter 1(GlyT1) inhibitors with greater selectivity relative to GlyT2 and improved aqueous solubility, we synthesized a series of 4H-1,2,4-triazole derivatives with heteroaromatic rings at the 4-position and investigated their structure-activity relationships. Replacement of the 2-fluorophenyl group of lead compound 5 with(More)
We report on the optimization of 4H-1,2,4-triazole derivatives to increase their activity and selectivity as glycine transporter 1 (GlyT1) inhibitors. Structure-activity relationship exploration resulted in the identification of a 3-[3-ethyl-5-(6-phenylpyridin-3-yl)-4H-1,2,4-triazol-4-yl]-2-methylbenzonitrile (14u) compound with markedly higher selectivity(More)
