J Brodkin et al.
The European journal of neuroscience, 16(11), 2241-2244 (2002-12-11)
It hs been suggested that metabotropic glutamate receptor subtype 5 (mGluR5) play a role in the expression of anxiety, based on anxiolytic-like effects of the selective mGluR5 antagonist MPEP (2-methyl-6-(phenylethynyl)pyridine) in rodent models of anxiety, including stress-induced hyperthermia (SIH). To
Jeffrey R Roppe et al.
Bioorganic & medicinal chemistry letters, 14(15), 3993-3996 (2004-07-01)
Structure-activity relationship studies leading to the discovery of a new, orally active mGlu5 receptor antagonist are described. The title compound, 5-[(2-methyl-1,3-thiazol-4-yl)ethynyl]-2,3'-bipyridine, is highly potent in vitro, has good in vivo receptor occupancy, and is efficacious in the rat fear-potentiated startle
Chris S Busse et al.
Neuropsychopharmacology : official publication of the American College of Neuropsychopharmacology, 29(11), 1971-1979 (2004-08-12)
Previous reports have demonstrated the anxiolytic effect of the potent and systemically active metabotropic glutamate subtype 5 (mGlu5) receptor antagonist 2-methyl-6-(phenylethynyl)pyridine (MPEP) in rodents. Here, we present evidence for the anxiolytic activity of a novel mGlu5 receptor antagonist, 3-[(2-methyl-1,3-thiazol-4-yl)ethynyl]pyridine (MTEP)
Margaret J Bradbury et al.
The Journal of pharmacology and experimental therapeutics, 313(1), 395-402 (2004-12-14)
The metabotropic glutamate receptor subtype mGlu5 modulates central reward pathways. Many transmitter systems within reward pathways affect feeding. We examined the potential role of mGlu5 in body weight regulation using genetic and pharmacological approaches. Adult mice lacking mGlu5, mGluR5-/-, weighed
Aleksandra Klodzinska et al.
Neuropharmacology, 47(3), 342-350 (2004-07-28)
Several lines of evidence suggest a crucial involvement of glutamate in the mechanism of action of anxiolytic drugs including the involvement of group I metabotropic glutamate (mGlu) receptors. Given the recent discovery of a selective and brain penetrable mGlu5 receptor
Nicholas D P Cosford et al.
Journal of medicinal chemistry, 46(2), 204-206 (2003-01-10)
2-Methyl-6-(phenylethynyl)pyridine (3), a potent noncompetitive mGlu5 receptor antagonist widely used to characterize the pharmacology of mGlu5 receptors, suffers from a number of shortcomings as a therapeutic agent, including off-target activity and poor aqueous solubility. Seeking to improve the properties of
