Several trishomocubane analogues of the type 4-azahexacyclo [5.4.1.0(2,6).0(3,10).0(5,9).0(8,11)]dodecane exhibited moderate to high affinity at sigma-receptor subtypes and low or negligible affinity at dopamine and serotonin transporters (SERT). Selected compounds were examined for their effects on amphetamine-stimulated [3H]dopamine release from striatal(More)
EMD-95885, 6-[3-[4-(4-fluorobenzyl)piperidino]propionyl]-3H-benzoxazol-2-one (1) has been described as a selective antagonist for the NMDA receptors containing NR2B subunits, displaying an IC50 of 3.9 nM for this subtype. EMD-95885 (1) has been synthesized in good overall yield and labelled with carbon-11 ( T1/2 : 20.4 min) at its benzoxazolinone moiety(More)
The high affinity translocator protein (TSPO) ligand 6-chloro-2-(4'-iodophenyl)-3-(N,N-methylethyl)imidazo[1,2-a]pyridine-3-acetamide (CLINME) was radiolabelled with iodine-123 and assessed for its sensitivity for the TSPO in rodents. Moreover neuroinflammatory changes on a unilateral excitotoxic lesion rat model were detected using SPECT imaging.(More)
Tyrosine (Tyr) sulfation is a common post-translational modification that is implicated in a variety of important biological processes, including the fusion and entry of human immunodeficiency virus type-1 (HIV-1). A number of sulfated Tyr (sTyr) residues on the N-terminus of the CCR5 chemokine receptor are involved in a crucial binding interaction with the(More)
