Abstract

Novel AT1 receptor antagonists bearing substituted 4-phenylquinoline moieties instead of the classical biphenyl fragment were designed and synthesized as the first step of an investigation devoted to the development of new antihypertensive agents and to the understanding of the molecular basis of their pharmacodynamic and pharmacokinetic properties. The newly synthesized compounds were tested for their potential ability to displace [125I]Sar1,Ile8-Ang II specifically bound to AT1 receptor in rat hepatic membranes. These AT1 receptor binding studies revealed nanomolar affinity in several of the compounds under study. The most potent ligands 4b,t were found to be equipotent with losartan and possessed either a 3-tetrazolylquinoline or a 2-amino-3-quinolinecarboxylic moiety, respectively. Moreover, some selected compounds were evaluated for antagonism of Ang II-induced contraction in rabbit aortic strips, and the most potent compounds in the binding test 4b,t were slightly more potent than losartan in inhibiting Ang II-induced contraction. Finally, the most relevant structure-affinity relationship data were rationalized by means of computational studies performed on the isolated ligands as well as by computational simulations on the ligands complexed with a theoretical AT1 receptor model.
