Novel thiazolotriazolopyrimidine derivatives (23-33) designed as potential adenosine A(2A) receptor (A(2A)R) antagonists were synthesized. Molecular docking studies revealed that all compounds (23-33) exhibited strong interaction with A(2A)R. The strong interaction of the compounds (23-33) with A(2A)R in silico was confirmed by their high binding affinity with human A(2A)R stably expressed in HEK293 cells using radioligand-binding assay. The compounds 24-26 demonstrated substantial binding affinity and selectivity for A(2A)R as compared to SCH58261, a standard A(2A)R antagonist. Decrease in A(2A)R-coupled release of endogenous cAMP in treated HEK293 cells demonstrated in vitro A(2A)R antagonist potential of the compounds 24-26. Attenuation in haloperidol-induced motor impairments (catalepsy and akinesia) in Swiss albino male mice pre-treated with compounds 24-26 further supports their role in the alleviation of PD symptoms.
