N-4-t-Butylbenzyl 2-(4-methylsulfonylaminophenyl) propanamide TRPV1 antagonists: Structure-activity relationships in the A-region.
ABSTRACT Structure-activity relationships for the A-region in a series of N-4-t-butylbenzyl 2-(4-methylsulfonylaminophenyl) propanamides as TRPV1 antagonists have been investigated. Among them, the 3-fluoro analogue 54 showed high binding affinity and potent antagonism for both rTRPV1 and hTRPV1 in CHO cells. Its stereospecific activity was demonstrated with marked selectivity for the (S)-configuration (54S versus 54R). A docking study of 54S with our hTRPV1 homology model highlighted crucial hydrogen bonds between the ligand and the receptor contributing to its potency.

ABSTRACT: A series of α-methylated analogues of the potent sRTX thiourea antagonists were investigated as rTRPV1 ligands in order to examine the effect of α-methylation on receptor activity. The SAR analysis indicated that activity was stereospecific with the (R)-configuration of the newly formed chiral center providing high binding affinity and potent antagonism while the configuration of the C-region was not significant.Bioorganic & medicinal chemistry letters 04/2014; 24(12).

ABSTRACT: A series of 2-thio pyridine C-region analogues of 2-(3-fluoro-4-methylsulfonylaminophenyl)propanamides were investigated as hTRPV1 antagonists. Among them, compound 24S showed stereospecific and excellent TRPV1 antagonism of capsaicin-induced activation. Further, it demonstrated strong anti-allodynic in a rat neuropathic pain model. Consistent with its action in vitro being through TRPV1, compound 24S blocked capsaicin-induced hypothermia in mice. Docking analysis of 24S with our hTRPV1 homology model was performed to identify its binding mode.Bioorganic & medicinal chemistry 08/2013; DOI:10.1016/j.bmc.2013.08.015 · 2.82 Impact Factor

ABSTRACT: The structure activity relationships of 2-oxy pyridine derivatives in the C-region of N-(6-trifluoromethyl-pyridin-3-ylmethyl) 2-(3-fluoro-4-methylsulfonylaminophenyl)propanamides as hTRPV1 antagonists were investigated. The analysis indicated that the lipophilicity of the 2-oxy substituents was critical for potent antagonism and 4 or 5 carbons appeared to be optimal for activity. Multiple compounds proved to have comparable activity to 1, which had been reported as the most potent antagonist for capsaicin activity among the previous series of compounds. Further analysis of compounds 22 (2-isobutyloxy) and 53 (2-benzyloxy) in the formalin test in mice demonstrated strong analgesic activity with full efficacy. Docking analysis of 53S using our hTRPV1 homology model indicated that the A- and B-region 2-(3-fluoro-4-methylsulfonylaminophenyl)propanamide made important hydrophobic and hydrogen bonding interactions with Tyr511 and that the C-region 6-trifluoromethyl and 2-benzyloxy groups of pyridine occupied the two hydrophobic binding pockets, respectively.European Journal of Medicinal Chemistry 04/2013; 64C:589-602.
