Abstract

The synthesis and pharmacological testing of two series of novel bis-quinolinium cyclophanes as blockers of the apamin- sensitive Ca2+-activated K+ (SKCa) channel are presented. In these cyclophanes the two 4-aminoquinolinium groups are joined at the ring N atoms (linker L) and at the exocyclic N atoms (linker A). In those cases where A and L contain two or more aromatic rings each, the activity of the compound is not critically dependent upon the nature of the linkers. When A and L each have only one benzene ring, the blocking potency changes dramatically with simple structural variations in the linkers. One of these smaller cyclophanes having A = benzene-1,4- diylbis(methylene) and L = benzene-1,3-diylbis(methylene) (3j, 6,10-diaza-1,5(1,4)-diquinolina-3(1,3),8(1,4)- dibenzenacyclodecaphanedium tritrifluoroacetate, UCL 1684) has an IC50 of 3 nM and is the most potent non-peptidic SKCa channel blocker described to date. Conformational analysis on the smaller cyclophanes using molecular modeling techniques suggests that the differences in the blocking potencies of the compounds may be attributable to their different conformational preferences
