A series of pyridomorphinans derived from naloxone, oxymorphone, and hydromorphone (7a-k) were synthesized and evaluated for binding affinity at the opioid delta, micro, and kappa receptors in brain membranes using radioligand binding assays and for functional activity in vitro using...

(S)-N-[1-(4-Cyclopropylmethyl-3,4-dihydro-2H-benzo[1,4]oxazin-6-yl)-ethyl]-3-(2-fluoro-phenyl)-acrylamide ((S)-2) was identified as a potent and efficacious KCNQ2 opener. This compound demonstrated significant activity in reducing neuronal hyperexcitability in rat hippocampal slices, and the inhibition mediated by (S)-2 was reversed by the KCNQ blocker linopirdine.

A novel series of piperazines appended to a succinamide backbone were synthesized and found to have a high affinity for the melanocortin-4 receptor (IC(50)s ranging from <0.1 to 200 nM). Both agonists and antagonists of MC4R were prepared by modifying...
