      Abstract: Transmembrane AMPA receptor regulatory   proteins (TARPs) are a family of scaffolding proteins that   regulate AMPA receptor trafficking and function. TARP γ-8 is one   member of this family and is highly expressed within the   hippocampus relative to the cerebellum. A selective TARP   γ-8-dependent AMPA receptor antagonist (TDAA) is an innovative   approach to modulate AMPA receptors in specific brain regions to   potentially increase the therapeutic index relative to known   non-TARP-dependent AMPA antagonists. We describe here, for the   first time, the discovery of a noncompetitive AMPA receptor   antagonist that is dependent on the presence of TARP γ-8. Three   major iteration cycles were employed to improve upon potency,   CYP1A2-dependent challenges, and in vivo clearance. An optimized   molecule, compound (-)-25 (LY3130481), was fully protective   against pentylenetetrazole-induced convulsions in rats without   the motor impairment associated with non-TARP-dependent AMPA   receptor antagonists. Compound (-)-25 could be utilized to   provide proof of concept for antiepileptic efficacy with reduced   motor side effects in patients.;
