Synthesis and structure-activity relationship studies in peripheral benzodiazepine receptor ligands related to alpidem.


PMID 18294852

Abstract

The exploration of the structure-affinity relationships concerning a new class of peripheral benzodiazepine receptor (PBR) ligands related to alpidem has been pursued in order to evaluate the consistency of the structure-affinity relationships among different classes (and subclasses) of PBR ligands. The target amide derivatives were prepared following a previously published procedure based on the condensation of pyrrolo[3,4-b]quinoline derivatives 11a,b with glyoxylic acid mono-hydrate and the subsequent amidation of the acids obtained via mixed anhydride. On the other hand, the preparation of compound 9g lacking the pharmacophoric (delta1) carbonyl group involved: (a) the double sequential attack of the dimethylmethyleneammonium salt obtained from bis(dimethylamino)methane and acetyl chloride to pyrrolo[3,4-b]quinoline derivative 11b, (b) the quaternization of the obtained allylamine derivative 13 with methyl iodide, and (c) the palladium-catalyzed allylation of N-methyl-p-anisidine by quaternary allylammonium cation 14. The structure-affinity relationship trends observed in this subclass of tricyclic alpidem-related PBR ligands find correlations in other classes (or subclasses) of PBR ligands. This result supports the initial pharmacophoric hypothesis and suggests a common mode of interaction at the PBR binding site.
