Abstract In an effort to identify novel ligands possessing high affinity and selectivity for the A(2B) AR subtype, we further investigated the class of 3-aryl[1,2,4]triazino[4,3-a]benzimidazol-4(10H)-ones V, previously disclosed by us as selective A(1) AR antagonists. Preliminary assays on a number of triazinobenzimidazoles derived from our "in-house" collection revealed that all the derivatives selected showed significant affinity at A(2B) AR, no affinity at A(3) AR, and various degrees of selectivity toward A(1) and A(2A) ARs. Investigation of a new series featuring modified substituents at the 10-position (4'-chlorophenyl or phenylethyl groups), and a chlorine atom at the 7-position (X) of the triazinobenzimidazole nucleus, yielded highly potent and selective A(2B) AR antagonists. The presence of a pendant 3-phenyl ring appears to hamper the interaction with A(2A) AR, conferring high A(2B)/A(2A) AR selectivity. Derivative 13 (X = Cl, R = C(6)H(5)) is the most potent and selective compound, with an IC(50) of 3.10 nM at A(2B) AR and no affinity at A(1), A(2A), and A(3) ARs.
