The continued SAR investigation of tryptamine-based human beta(3)-adrenergic receptor (AR) agonists is reported. Prior efforts resulted in the identification of 2 as a potent beta(3)-AR agonist. Further modification of the left side arylsulfonamide portion in 2 provided compounds with good cell permeability, which have potent agonistic activity for(More)
The synthesis and evaluation of a novel series of 1,7-cyclized indole-based human adrenergic receptor (beta3-AR) agonists are reported. The synthesis of a variety of 1,7-cyclized indole part was accomplished by the Mitsunobu reaction or a ring closing metathesis (RCM) reaction. SAR studies revealed that expansion of the ring size resulted in considerable(More)
We have previously reported that (4R,5R)-5-ethyl-2-imino-4-methylthiazolidine (3) strongly inhibits inducible nitric oxide synthase (iNOS). In a successive search for strong and selective iNOS inhibitors, we, herein, describe the synthesis of the selenium analogue of 3 (4: ES-2133) and its related optically active compounds and examine their in vitro and in(More)
The design, synthesis and SAR studies of novel 4,5,6,7-tetrahydropyrazolopyrazines as metabotropic glutamate receptor 5 (mGluR5) negative allosteric modulators (NAMs) are presented in this letter. Starting from a HTS hit compound (1, IC50=477nM), optimization of various groups led to the synthesis of a potent mGluR5 NAM (32, IC50=75nM) with excellent rat PK(More)
