2013 (English)In: Journal of Medicinal Chemistry, ISSN 0022-2623, E-ISSN 1520-4804, Vol. 56, no 22, 9045-9056 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
The discovery and characterization of a novel chemical series of phosphorothioyl-containing imidazopyridines as potent neuropeptide S receptor antagonists is presented. The synthesis of analogues and their structure-activity relationship with respect to the Gq, Gs, and ERK pathways is detailed. The pharmacokinetics and in vivo efficacy of a potent analogue in a food intake rodent model are also included, underscoring its potential therapeutic value for the treatment of sleep, anxiety, and addiction disorders.
