But citalopram can also be viewed as a constrained analogue of paroxetine. Researches has shown that nearly all the activity resides in the S -enantiomer and that R -citalopram actually counteracts the action of the S -enantiomer. The combination of the two enantiomers is known as racemic citalopram and has weak antihistaminic properties that reside in the R -enantiomer. Solution to improve the properties of racemic citalopram is to remove the unwanted R -enantiomer. This change appears to remove the antihistaminic properties of the drug.
By removing the R -enantiomer, the lowest dose of escitalopram becomes more efficacious and faster onset than comparable dose of citalopram, where escitalopram has twice the activity of citalopram and is at least 27 times more potent than the R -enantiomer.
Tametraline , a compound synthesized in by Pfizer , was shown to be a potent NE and DA re-uptake inhibitor with animal studies. The compound was named sertraline figure 8. Sertraline is the second most potent inhibitor of 5-HT re-uptake which has two very interesting characteristics that distinguish it i. It is possible that only modest inhibition of DAT and NET is needed to cause an increase in energy, motivation and concentration, specially when added to other activity such as SERT inhibition.

Such information is very important for the understanding of essential aspects of the drugs action, ranging from selectivity profile to therapeutic efficacy and the development of new and improved drugs that target the human SERT. Comparative molecular modeling have been used in research to create structural models of human SERT in complex with its ligand but has not given good results because of low phylogenetic and functional similarity between human SERT and available template proteins. SERT contains approximately amino acids that are predicted to form 12 transmembrane alpha-helixes TMs which are connected with intra- and extracellular loops ILs and ELs.
Therefore, the crystal structure of LeuT and its transport mechanism have been proven to be a good model system for the study of NSS proteins. LeuT has been co-crystallised with sertraline and R - and S -fluoxetine where the SSRIs have been found to bind as non-competitive inhibitors in a vestibule binding site can be looked at as a second binding site , which is separated from the drugs binding site by the site chains of the two aromatic amino acids of the extracellular gate of the transport protein. Conversely, there could be differences in their binding where the other part of the drug molecule will likely bind to SERT in a different way, given the diversity in their structure.
Both enantiomers of fluoxetine show a similar affinity for SERT. Both enantiomers of fluoxetine bind to the extracellular vestibule on the LeuT protein is such a way that the three fluorine atoms of the methylphenoxy ring bind into the HBP that is formed by Leu25, Gly26, Leu29, Arg30 and Tyr The halogens additionally make Van der Waals interaction with Leu29 and Tyr, where the S -enantiomer additionally binds to Phe and makes Van der Waals contact with it among with previously mentioned amino acids.
Because of the S -enantiomers opposite chirality to the R -enantiomer the rest of the molecule is reversed in the HBP, where the amine tail points towards the extracellular space and interacts with the N -terminal of Leu, Asp and Ala amino acids which are a part of the TM In this LeuT bound form the complex is rather rigid. The methylphenoxy ring rotates about the O5-C6 bond by 46 degrees for the R -enantiomer and 16 degrees for the S -enantiomer, but rigidity in the molecular structure indicates that the drug maintains its low-energy configuration upon binding to its protein target.
The tetralin tetrahydronaphthalene on the other end of sertralines structure is in contact with Leu, Asp and Thr which are a part of the TM10 as well as the molecule interacts with Ala of the EL4 hairpin loop and Arg30 and Gin34 of the TM1, where the amine tail points towards the cytoplasm.
The bound sertraline molecule has its dichlorophenyl ring rotated about the C4-C13 bond by degrees compared to the free drug. Andersen et al. S -citalopram is positioned as that the cyanophthalane-. Ile and Phe are likely not in direct contact with the drug molecule, but they are very important for controlling alignment of the inhibitor.
After the discovery of SSRIs the interest for newer antidepressant drugs with broader mechanism of action increased. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. See also: PPPA drug.
