Behavioral studies in vivo, i.e., elevated plus-maze (EPM) and novel object recognition (NOR) tests, were performed. Extended studies on the influence of KMP-10 on rats metabolism, including biochemical tests, were conducted in vivo. Results indicated significant anxiolytic and precognitive properties, as well as some anti-obesity properties in vivo, and it was found to satisfy the druglikeness profile in vitro for KMP-10. The compound seems to be a good lead-structure and candidate for wider pharmacological studies in search for new CNS-drugs acting via 5-HT6R.

In the present assay, caffeine was also used as good permeable compound with its calculated = 22.04 10?6 cm/s. Interestingly, KMP-10 had 4-fold weaker passive penetration than caffeine in PAMPA, whereas it a showed slightly better result in the Caco-2 passive/active transport model, where its absorption was only 3-fold weaker than caffeine (Table 2). Since the literature sources indicated passive transport of caffeine through biological membranes , the estimated better result of KMP-10 absorption in the Caco-2 model may be due to some up-take transporters, which are involved in KMP-10 transport through the Caco-2 cells. Results of both Mouse monoclonal to CD35.CT11 reacts with CR1, the receptor for the complement component C3b /C4, composed of four different allotypes (160, 190, 220 and 150 kDa). CD35 antigen is expressed on erythrocytes, neutrophils, monocytes, B -lymphocytes and 10-15% of T -lymphocytes. CD35 is caTagorized as a regulator of complement avtivation. It binds complement components C3b and C4b, mediating phagocytosis by granulocytes and monocytes. Application: Removal and reduction of excessive amounts of complement fixing immune complexes in SLE and other auto-immune disorder the PAMPA and Caco-2 assays are in good concordance with previously performed bloodCbrain barrier permeability simulation using QikProp from Schr?dinger Suite software. The in silico prediction also showed a moderate permeability properties for KMP-10, with a QPlogBB parameter of ?0.92 that was placed almost exactly in the middle of the range predicted for permeable compounds (?0.3C1.2) . 2.2.2. Affinity to P-Glycoprotein One of Clopidogrel the most significant modification strategies for brain penetration improvement is reducing P-glycoprotein (Pgp) efflux. Pgp is active efflux transporter in the lipid bilayer cell membranes of the bloodCbrain barrier and the intestine. In addition to its influence on drugs brain penetration abilities, this integral membrane protein also plays many roles in adverse drugCdrug interactions (DDIs) and multidrug resistance. Thus, it is very important to determine as early as possible, if potential drug candidate stimulates or inhibits Pgp. The stimulation of ATP consuming by Pgp is caused by compounds which are substrates for Pgp and may be measured luminescently by Pgp-ATPase (AdenosineTriPhosphatase) assay test. In this assay, the influence of 5-HT6 ligands on Pgp basal activity was estimated. The basal activity Clopidogrel of Pgp was considered as the difference in the luminescent signal between samples treated with 100 M of the potent and selective Pgp inhibitor (Na3VO4) and untreated samples (Figure 4). The stimulation effect was shown for the reference drug verapamil with an increase in ATP consuming up to 175% Clopidogrel of Pgp basal activity in a concentration of 200 M. The results obtained for 5-HT6R ligands indicated that none of the tested compounds was the substrate of Pgp because they did not increase the Pgp activity at the tested concentration 100 M, nor did they did cause any statistically significant changes of basal Pgp activity. No strong substrate of Pgp among triazine-derived 5-HT6R ligands had been Clopidogrel found in our previous studies as well . Open in a separate window Figure 4 The effect of verapamil (VL) and 5-HT6R ligands on P-glycoprotein (Pgp) basal activity (basal). Statistical significance (** 0.01) was analyzed by Graph Pad PrismTM 6 software using a one-way ANOVA and Bonferronis multiple comparison post-hoctest. The compounds were examined in triplicate. 2.2.3. Plasma Protein Binding Binding to the plasma proteins should be investigated in the early stages of the drug discovery process, as this pharmacological effect is exerted only by the unbound fraction (fu) of the drug, which can penetrate the cell membranes. Many drugs, especially lipophilic compounds, bind to circulating plasma proteins, such as human serum albumin (HSA), 1-acid glycoprotein (AGP),.
