Synthesis and mode of action of (125)I- and (3)H-labeled thieno[2,3-c]pyridine antagonists of cell adhesion molecule expression.

A series of thieno[2,3-c]pyridine antagonists of cell adhesion molecule (CAM) expression, such as A-205804 (1) and A-249377 (2), selectively suppressed the induced expression of E-selectin and ICAM-1 over VCAM-1. In an effort to explore the biological mechanism of action of these inhibitors, we synthesized (125)I- and (3)H-labeled thieno[2,3-c]pyridines 5… CONTINUE READING
