BioAssay: AID 143467

Inhibition of binding of [3H]strychnine to glycine receptor in rat

Except for structurally similar small amino acids, such as alanine, beta-alanine, and serine, compounds acting as glycine-receptor agonists are an unknown class of pharmacological agents. To investigate the potential of small, substituted heterocycles to act as glycine agonists, we have evaluated the similarities between glycine and a series of hydroxy- and amino-substituted pyrazoles and more ..

Description:
Title: Evaluation and synthesis of aminohydroxyisoxazoles and pyrazoles as potential glycine agonists.

Abstract: Except for structurally similar small amino acids, such as alanine, beta-alanine, and serine, compounds acting as glycine-receptor agonists are an unknown class of pharmacological agents. To investigate the potential of small, substituted heterocycles to act as glycine agonists, we have evaluated the similarities between glycine and a series of hydroxy- and amino-substituted pyrazoles and isoxazoles through complementary molecular modeling techniques. Using a "scorecard approach" to determine the overall similarity of projected agonist structures to glycine, we prioritized synthesis and subsequently prepared several novel derivatives. The biological activity of these compounds was compared to that of glycine by using a [3H]strychnine-mediated glycine receptor binding assay. Despite the close similarity in the calculated parameters when compared to glycine, no significant receptor-binding activity was observed for the targeted analogues. These results illustrate the structurally exacting nature of the glycine receptor.
