Abstract Share this page

Ro 25-1553 is a cyclic VIP derivative with a high affinity for the VPAC(2) receptor subtype. Our goal was to identify the modifications that support its selectivity for VPAC(2) receptors, and to develop a VIP or Ro 25-1553 analog behaving as a high affinity, VPAC(2) selective antagonist. The selectivity of Ro 25-1553 for the human receptor was supported mainly by the acetylation of the amino-terminus, by the introduction of a lysine residue in position 12, and by the carboxyl-terminal extension. The lactam bridge created between positions 21 and 25 contributed to the affinity of the compound for the VIP receptors but participated only marginally to its selectivity. Deletion of the first five aminoacid residues led to a low affinity antagonist with a low selectivity. Introduction of a D-Phe residue in position 2 reduced the affinity, the selectivity and the intrinsic activity, the compound being a partial agonist. Myristoylation of the amino-terminus of [K(12)]VIP(1-26) extended carboxyl-terminally with the -K-K-G-G-T sequence of Ro 25-1553 led to a high affinity, selective VPAC(2) receptor antagonist. This molecule represents the first selective human VPAC(2) receptor antagonist described to date.
