Characterization of the interaction of diacylpiperazine antagonists with the human neurokinin-1 receptor: identification of a common binding site for structurally dissimilar antagonists.

We recently described a novel series of diacylpiperazine antagonists of the human neurokinin (NK)-1 receptor. The diacylpiperazine compounds are structurally dissimilar from previously described NK-1 antagonists. L-161,664 [1-(N,N-diphenylaminocarbonyl)-4-(N',N'-di-n-pentylaminocarbony l) piperazine-2-diethylaminopropylcarboxamide] inhibits 125I-substance P… CONTINUE READING
