In an effort to produce new pharmacological probes with mixed sigma/5-HT(1A) affinity, we have synthesized a series of 12 original 6-piperidino- or piperazino-alkyl-2(3H)-benzothiazolones and their receptor binding profile (sigma, 5-HT(1A), 5-HT(2A), 5-HT(3), D(2), H(1), and M(1)) was determined. The best mixed sigma/5-HT(1A) affinity profile was found within the piperidine series with 4-benzyl substitution associated to linker methylene chain n=2 (K(i) 5 and 4nM, respectively). Moreover, a highly selective sigma2 ligand was obtained with a 3,4-dichlorobenzyl substitution associated to n=4 (K(i) 2nM, selectivity ratio sigma1/sigma2=70).
