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)
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)
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)
We describe here the design, synthesis and characterization of a series of 4,5,6,7-tetrahydrooxazolo[4,5-c]pyridines as metabotropic glutamate receptor (mGluR) 5 negative allosteric modulators (NAMs). Optimization of the substituents led to the identification of several compounds with good pharmacokinetic profiles, including long half life and high oral(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)
