Disease relevance of N-phenylbenzamide


High impact information on N-phenylbenzamide

  • Encainide, a new benzanilide derivative with high potency and a good therapeutic/toxic ratio, was evaluated with the use of standard His bundle recording techniques to determine its effects on the cardiac conduction system in closed chest animals [2].
  • Compounds with alkoxy groups (especially ethoxy group) at the 2'-position of benzanilide possessed potent affinity and selectivity for the V1A receptor versus V2 receptor [3].
  • A series of compounds structurally related to 2-phenyl-4'-(2,3,4,5-tetrahydro-1H-1,5-benzodiazepine-1-carbonyl) benzanilide was synthesized and demonstrated to have arginine vasopressin (AVP) antagonist activity for both V1A and V2 receptors [4].
  • Synthesis of benzanilide derivatives which have dual alpha 1-adrenoceptor antagonistic action and steroid 5 alpha-reductase inhibitory activity and their structure-activity relationships is described [5].
  • 3. Hydrolysis of benzanilide and related compounds was inhibited by anthelmintic organophosphates [6].

Anatomical context of N-phenylbenzamide

  • TZ181 (7a), having a benzanilide skeleton, exhibited differentiation-inducing activity in HL-60 cell assay, while TZ191 (7b), the N-methylated analog of TZ181 (7a), TZ245 (9) and TZ335 (10) acted as retinoid synergists like the RXR-selective ligand, LGD1069 (5) [7].

Analytical, diagnostic and therapeutic context of N-phenylbenzamide

  • Metalation of benzanilide with n-butyllithium, addition of 4-(dimethylamino)cyclohexanone, and acidification afforded a mixture of cis- and trans-4-(dimethylamino)spiro[cyclohexane-1,1'(3'H)-isobenzofuran]-3'-ones (1a,b), which were separated by fractional crystallization [8].
