Abstract
It has been reported that 5-HT7 receptors are promising targets of depression and neuropathic pain. 5- HT7 receptor antagonists have exhibited antidepressant-like profiles, while agonists have represented potential therapeutics for pain. In the course of our ongoing efforts to discover novel 5-HT7 modulators, we designed an arylpiperazine scaffold with a substituted biphenyl-2-ylmethyl group. A series of biphenyl- 2-yl-arylpiperazinylmethanes were then prepared, which showed a broad spectrum of binding affinities to the 5-HT7 receptor depending upon the substituents attached to the biphenyl and aryl functionalities. Among those synthesized compounds, the compounds 1–24 and 1–26 showed the best binding affinities to the 5-HT7 receptor with Ki values of 43.0 and 46.0 nM, respectively. Structure–activity relationship study in conjunction with molecular docking study proposed that the 5-HT7 receptor might have two distinctive hydrophobic binding sites, one specific for aromatic 2-OCH3 substituents within the arylpiperazine and the other for biphenyl methoxy group.
