A series of sulfenamide and sulfonamide derivatives was synthesized and evaluated for the affinity at CB1and CB2receptors. The N-bornyl-S-(5,6-di-p-tolylpyridazin-3-yl)-sulfenamide, compound 11, displayed good affinity and high selectivity for CB1receptors (Kivalues of 44.6 nM for CB1receptors and >40 Î¼M for CB2receptors, respectively). The N-isopinocampheyl-sulfenamide 12 and its sulfonamide analogue 22 showed similar selectivity for CB1receptors with Kivalues of 75.5 and 73.2 nM, respectively. These novel compounds behave as antagonists/inverse agonists at CB1receptor in the [35S]-GTPÎ³S binding assays, and none showed adequate predictive bloodâbrain barrier permeation, exhibiting low estimated LD50. However, testing compound 12 in a supraspinal analgesic test (hot-plate) revealed that it was as effective as the classic CB1receptor antagonist rimonabant, in reversing the analgesic effect of a cannabinoid agonist.
