The well-known 5-HT(1A)/5-HT(7) selectivity issue was tackled by a new series of 4-aminoethylpiperazinyl aryl ketones (1a-1l) specifically designed to distinguish the two hydrophobic sites centered at the anchoring salt bridge. The 4-aminoethylpiperazinyl aryl ketones showed a wide spectrum of activity and selectivity for the 5-HT receptors depending on the type of the hydrophobic groups attached at the aryl piperazinyl ketone scaffold. Docking study of the most active compounds against 5-HT(7… CONTINUE READING
