Synthesis and biological evaluation of a novel sigma-1 receptor antagonist based on 3,4-dihydro-2(1H)-quinolinone scaffold as a potential analgesic.


PMID 24735647

Abstract

The synthesis and sigma-1 receptor (σ1R) antagonist activity of a new series of 3,4-dihydro-2(1H)-quinolinone derivatives are reported. The new compounds were evaluated in vitro in sigma-1 and sigma-2 receptor-binding assays in guinea pig brain membranes. The structure-activity relationship led us to the promising derivative 7-(3-(piperidin-1-yl)propoxy)-1-(4-fluorobenzyl)-3,4-dihydro-2(1H)-quinolinone (35). The compounds with highest affinity and greatest selectivity were further profiled, and compound 35 had a high binding constant for sigma-1 receptor (Kiσ1 = 1.22 nM) and high sigma-1/2 selectivity (1066-fold). Thus, compound 35, which proved to be an antagonist of sigma-1 receptor, emerged as the most interesting candidate. In addition, compound 35 exerted dose-dependent anti-nociceptive effects in the formalin test. These characteristics suggested that the potent and selective compound 35 could be a potent candidate for pain treatment.
