Alpha series of novel 3,6-diazabicyclo[3.1.1]heptane derivatives 4a-f was synthesized and their affinity and selectivity towards alpha4beta2 and alpha7 nAChR subtypes were evaluated. The results of the current study revealed a number of compounds (4a, 4b and 4c) having a very high affinity for alpha4beta2 (K(i) at alpha4beta2 ranging from 0.023 to 0.056 nM) versus alpha7 nAChR subtypes; among these compounds, the 3-(6-bromopyridin-3-yl)-3,6-diazabicyclo[3.1.1]heptane 4c was found to be the most alpha7alpha4beta2 selective term in receptor binding assays (alpha7alpha4beta2=1295). Moreover, compound 4d also had high affinity for the alpha4beta2 nAChR subtype (K(i)=1.2 nM) with considerably high selectivity (alpha7/alpha4beta2=23300).
