Abstract

The SAR of over 50 derivatives of octahydrobenzo[g]quinoline (obeline)-type somatostatin sst(1) receptor antagonist 1 is presented, focusing on the modification of its arylpiperazine moiety. Sst(1) affinities in this series cover a range of five orders of magnitude with the best derivatives displaying subnanomolar sst(1) affinities and >10,000-fold selectivities over the sst(2) receptor subtype as well as promising pharmacokinetic properties.
