Abstract

Adenosines bearing 5'-modification in conjunction with an N6-substituent have previously been shown to act as partial agonists at the A1 adenosine receptor. Our current work investigates the effect of modifying the 5'-position in conjunction with efficacious bicyclic and tricyclic N6-substituents. Several highly potent agonists for the A1 adenosine receptor were identified; however, all of these compounds behaved as full agonists. In keeping with previous reports, 5'-halogen and 5'-sulfide derivatives of N6-(endo-norborn-2-yl)adenosine were, in general, low nanomolar agonists of the A1 adenosine receptor. The known partial agonist, N6-cyclopentyl-5'-deoxy-5'-ethylthioadenosine (2), also behaved as a full agonist in our assay.
