Substituted pyrazolo[3,4-b]pyridines as human A1adenosine antagonists: Developments in understanding the receptor stereoselectivity

Author affiliations

Abstract

A1adenosine receptor antagonists have been proposed to possess an interesting range of potential therapeutic applications. We have already reported the synthesis and the biological characterization of a family of pyrazolo[3,4-b]pyridine derivatives as A1adenosine ligands endowed with an antagonistic profile. In the present work, we report the LC separation of enantiomers of our most active A1antagonists together with the determination of their absolute configuration by means of X-ray crystal structure analysis. Biological assays confirmed a different activity for the two enantiomers, with the R one showing the higher human A1AR affinity. We also developed a homology model of this receptor subtype in order to suggest a binding disposition of the ligands into the hA1AR. All of the obtained data suggest that the compound's chirality plays a key role in A1 affinity.
