A series of α-substituted acetamide derivatives of previously reported 2-(3-fluoro-4-methylsulfonamidophenyl)propanamide leads (1, 2) were investigated for antagonism of hTRPV1 activation by capsaicin. Compound 34, which possesses an α-m-tolyl substituent, showed highly potent and selective antagonism of capsaicin with Ki(CAP)=0.1 nM. It thus reflected a 3-fold improvement in potency over parent 1. Docking analysis using our homology model indicated that the high potency of 34 might be attributed to a specific hydrophobic interaction of the m-tolyl group with the receptor.
