Open Access research with a real impact on health...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the Physical Activity for Health Group based within the School of Psychological Sciences & Health. Research here seeks to better understand how and why physical activity improves health, gain a better understanding of the amount, intensity, and type of physical activity needed for health benefits, and evaluate the effect of interventions to promote physical activity.

Abstract

A new series of 1H-imidazol-1-yl substituted 8-phenylxanthine analogs has been synthesized to study the effects of the imidazole group on the binding affinity of compounds for adenosine receptors. Competition binding studies of these compounds were carried out in vitro with human cloned receptors using [(3) H]DPCPX and [(3) H]ZM 241385 as radioligands at A(1) and A(2A) adenosine receptors, respectively. The effect of the substitution pattern of the (imidazolyl)alkoxy group on various positions of the phenyl ring at C(8) was also studied. The xanthine derivatives displayed varying degrees of affinity and selectivity towards A(1) and A(2A) receptor subtypes despite a common but variedly substituted Ar-C(8).
