    Notes: Summary The adamantane moiety was introduced in the tachykinin NK2 receptor-selective agonist [β-Ala8]-NKA(4–10) (H-Asp-Ser-Phe-Val-β-Ala-Leu-Met-NH2, MEN 10210) and in different positions of the NK2 receptor antagonist MEN 10376 (H-Asp-Tyr-d-Trp-Val-d-Trp-d-Trp-Lys-NH2) in order to investigate how this substitution affects their biological activity at tachykinin NK1, NK2 and NK3 receptors. 1-Adamantaneacetic acid (1-Ada-CH2COOH) was directly conjugated in the solid phase as the preformed OBt active ester to the N-terminal position of MEN 10210, obtaining MEN 10586 (1-Ada-CH2CO-Asp-Ser-Phe-Val-β-Ala-Leu-Met-NH2). The Pfp ester of adamantaneacetic acid (1) was prepared and used for the acylation of the N-terminal position of MEN 10376, yielding MEN 10606 (1-Ada-CH2CO-Asp-Tyr-d-Trp-Val-d-Trp-d-Trp-Lys-NH2). Compound 1 was then used to obtain the building block Fmoc-Lys(1-Ada-CH2CO)-OH as a modified amino acid for the synthesis of MEN 10818 [H-Asp-Tyr-d-Trp-Val-d-Trp-d-Trp-Lys(1-Ada-CH2CO)-NH2]. In order to investigate the biological activity of the peptide bearing the adamantane group together with the free N-terminal amino function, we synthesised MEN 10676 [H-Asp(O-2-Ada)-Tyr-d-Trp-Val-d-Trp-d-Trp-Lys-NH2] using Fmoc-Asp(O-2-Ada)-OH, in which 2-adamantanole was the protecting group of the aspartate β-COOH moiety during the peptide synthesis and survived the final peptide cleavage and deprotection carried out under controlled conditions. MEN 10586 showed an agonist activity comparable to that of the parent compound MEN 10210 at NK1 and NK2 receptors of guinea pig ileum, rabbit isolated pulmonary artery and hamster isolated trachea preparations, while it showed a 25-fold higher agonist activity at NK3 receptors of rat isolated portal vein. The three modified antagonist analogs displayed similar or reduced affinity at NK1, NK2 and NK3 receptors as compared to MEN 10376. The drop was particularly evident (〉2 log units) at the NK2 receptors of the rabbit isolated pulmonay artery.

    Notes: Summary It has recently been shown that the biological activity of the second generation kinin B1 receptor selective antagonist, desArg10 HOE 140, can be improved by specific amino acid substitutions. Starting from this observation, we undertook a systematic structure-activity relationship study of this antagonist, based on the alanine-scan technique, in order to obtain useful information for the rational design of more analogues. Our data indicate that the sequence of desArg10 HOE 140 does not tolerate the replacement by Ala of most of its residues, with the exception of Ser in position 7 and, to a lesser extent, D-Arg in position 1 and Hyp in position 4. The most critical residues appear to be Pro in position 3 and the C-terminal dipeptide Dtic-Oic; Ala replacement at these positions resultes in a total loss of activity. Moreover, replacement by Ala of Gly in position 5 reverts the activity of desArg10 HOE 140 to that of an agonist.
