Optimization of HTS hit 1 for NPY Y5 receptor binding affinity, CYP450 inhibition, solubility and metabolic stability led to the identification of some orally available oxygen-linker derivatives for in vivo study. Among them, derivative 4i inhibited food intake induced by the NPY Y5 selective agonist, and chronic oral administration of 4i in DIO mice caused(More)
Optimization of lead compound 2 is described, mainly focusing on modification at the C-2 position of the benzimidazole core. Replacement of the phenyl linker of 2 with saturated rings resulted in identification of compound 8b which combines high Y5 receptor binding affinity with a good ADME profile leading to in vivo efficacy.
Optimization of our HTS hit 1, mainly focused on modification at the C-2 position of the benzimidazole core, is described. Elimination of the flexible and metabolically labile -S-CH(2)- part and utilization of less lipophilic pyridone substructure led to identification of novel NPY Y5 receptor antagonists 6, which have low to sub-nanomolar Y5 receptor(More)
