Cyclic GMP phosphodiesterase inhibitors. 1. The discovery of a novel potent inhibitor, 4-((3,4-(methylenedioxy)benzyl)amino)-6,7,8-trimethoxyquinazoline.


PMID 8254606

Abstract

A newly synthesized compound, 4-((3,4-(methylenedioxy)benzyl)amino)-6,7,8-trimethoxyquinazoline (6), had a potent (IC50 = 0.36 microM) inhibitory action on cyclic GMP phosphodiesterase (cGMP-PDE) isolated from porcine aorta; its inhibitory activities toward other PDE isozymes were at least 10-fold weaker. In addition, 6 relaxed porcine coronary arteries precontracted with PGF2 alpha (EC50 = 1.96 +/- 0.58 microM). At the concentration of 30 microM, 6 caused elevation of the intracellular cGMP level in porcine coronary arteries without any change in cAMP level. Various other 4-substituted 6,7,8-trimethoxyquinazolines were also synthesized and evaluated for cGMP-PDE inhibitory activity. From their structure-activity relationships, we concluded that the 4-((3,4-(methylenedioxy)benzyl)-amino) group is essential for potent inhibition of cGMP-PDE.
