A series of α-methylated analogues of the potent sRTX thiourea antagonists were investigated as rTRPV1 ligands in order to examine the effect of α-methylation on receptor activity. The SAR analysis indicated that activity was stereospecific with the (R)-configuration of the newly formed chiral center providing high binding affinity and potent antagonism while the configuration of the C-region was not significant.
