Benzodiazepine receptor binding activity of 8-substituted-9-(3-substituted-benzyl)-6-(dimethylamino)-9H-purines.


PMID 1967311

Abstract

A series of 8-substituted analogues of 9-(3-aminobenzyl)-6-(dimethylamino)-9H-purine (8) were synthesized and tested for their ability to bind to the benzodiazepine receptor (BZR) in rat brain tissue. The most active compound was the 8-bromo-9-(3-formamidobenzyl) analogue 16 (IC50 = 0.011 microM), which was 1000-fold more active than the parent 9-benzyl-6-(dimethylamino)-9H-purine (1) and nearly as active as diazepam. Although substitution of a m-formamido group and an 8-bromo substituent on 1 imparted potent BZR binding activity, neither 16 nor 11 analogues exhibited significant anxiolytic activity on a modified Geller-Seifter conflict schedule.
