Applications of parallel synthetic lead hopping and pharmacophore-based virtual screening in the discovery of efficient glycine receptor potentiators.

Glycine receptors (GlyRs) are pentameric glycine-gated chloride ion channels that are enriched in the brainstem and spinal cord where they have been demonstrated to play a role in central nervous system (CNS) inhibition. Herein we describe two novel classes of glycine receptor potentiators that have been developed using similarity- and property-guided… CONTINUE READING
