The role of halogen bonding in interaction of ligands with SERT. - 2017-04-01 - 2019-03-31
The aim of this study is to investigate the role of halogen bonds (XB) in binding ligands to serotonin
transporter (SERT) and their influence on ligand selectivity over other receptors, in particular 5-HT6R and 5-HT7R. The basic scientific question in this project is: “Is it possible to increase ligand affinity to SERT by
careful design and introduction of a halogen bond donor into ligand structure?”. Additional goal is the
verification of hypothesis that appropriate design of a molecule possessing halogen bond donor(s) it is
possible to create polypharmacological molecule with affinity for SERT and/or 5-HT6R, 5-HT7R. 5-HT6R
and 5-HT7R were selected as additional targets as they were recently recognized as a very promising targets
for new antidepressant therapeutics possessing procognitive properties. To the best of our knowledge
substance simultaneously exhibiting affinity for SERT and 5-HT6R has never been reported before.
