Chromatin loops as allosteric modulators of enhancer-promoter interactions.

The classic model of eukaryotic gene expression requires direct spatial contact between a distal enhancer and a proximal promoter. Recent Chromosome C...

HMGA proteins as modulators of chromatin structure during transcriptional activation.
High mobility group (HMG) proteins are the most abundant non-histone chromatin associated proteins. HMG proteins bind to DNA and nucleosome and alter the structure of chromatin locally and globally. Accessibility to DNA within chromatin is a central

Allosteric modulators of human A2B adenosine receptor.
Among adenosine receptors (ARs) the A2B subtype exhibits low affinity for the endogenous agonist compared with the A1, A2A, and A3 subtypes and is therefore activated when concentrations of adenosine increase to a large extent following tissue damage

Regulation of chromatin structure and cell fate by R-loops.
Hybridization of RNA to its template DNA strand during transcription induces formation of R-loops-RNA:DNA hybrids with unpaired non-template DNA strands. Although unresolved R-loops can be detrimental, some R-loops contribute to regulation of chromat

Discovery of naphthyl-fused 5-membered lactams as a new class of m1 positive allosteric modulators.
Selective activation of the M1 muscarinic receptor via positive allosteric modulation represents an original approach to treat the cognitive decline in patients with Alzheimer's disease. A series of naphthyl-fused 5-membered lactams were identified a

Discovery of Oxazolobenzimidazoles as Positive Allosteric Modulators for the mGluR2 Receptor.
Novel oxazolobenzimidazoles are described as potent and selective positive allosteric modulators of the metabotropic glutamate receptor 2. The discovery of this class and optimization of its physical and pharmacokinetic properties led to the identifi

Synthesis and activity of substituted heteroaromatics as positive allosteric modulators for α4β2α5 nicotinic acetylcholine receptors.
The design and synthesis of a series of substituted heteroaromatic α4β2α5 positive allosteric modulators is reported. The optimization and development of the heteroaromatic series was carried out from NS9283, and several potent analogues, such as 3-(

Thieno[2,3-b]pyridines as negative allosteric modulators of metabotropic GluR5 receptors: hit-to-lead optimization.
An HTS campaign of our corporate compound library resulted in thieno[2,3-b]pyridines derivative hits with mGluR5 negative allosteric modulator effects. During the hit-to-lead development our objective was to improve affinity, and to keep the ligand e

Identification of amides as carboxylic Acid surrogates for quinolizidinone-based m1 positive allosteric modulators.
Selective activation of the M1 muscarinic receptor via positive allosteric modulation represents an approach to treat the cognitive decline in patients with Alzheimer's disease. A series of amides were examined as a replacement for the carboxylic aci
