7-Bromo-5-(2'-chlorophenyl)-1,3-dihydro-2H-1,4-benzodiazepin-2-one (I), a new tranquillizing agent: metabolism in rats

Xenobiotica; the Fate of Foreign Compounds in Biological Systems
A L EkonomovY I Vikhlyaev


1. After intraperitoneal injection of rats with the new benzodiazepine (compound I), four metabolites (compounds II, III, IV and V) were found in the urine. 2. Compound II was identified as 7-bromo-5-(2'-chlorophenyl)-1,3-dihydro-3-hydroxy-2H-1,4-benzodiazepin-2-one by comparison of g.l.c. and mass spectral properties of the metabolite and synthetic compound. 3. Mass spectra of compound III and its acid hydrolysis products indicate that compound III contains a hydroxyl group in the C(5)-phenyl ring. 4. Compounds IV and V were identified by mass spectrometry as products of simultaneous aromatic hydroxylation and methoxylation of the diazepine I. 5. The major urinary excretion products are compounds III, IV and V. Only very small amounts of compounds I and II were detected.

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

Synthetic Genetic Array Analysis

Synthetic genetic arrays allow the systematic examination of genetic interactions. Here is the latest research focusing on synthetic genetic arrays and their analyses.

Congenital Hyperinsulinism

Congenital hyperinsulinism is caused by genetic mutations resulting in excess insulin secretion from beta cells of the pancreas. Here is the latest research.

Neural Activity: Imaging

Imaging of neural activity in vivo has developed rapidly recently with the advancement of fluorescence microscopy, including new applications using miniaturized microscopes (miniscopes). This feed follows the progress in this growing field.

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

Chronic fatigue syndrome is a disease characterized by unexplained disabling fatigue; the pathology of which is incompletely understood. Discover the latest research on chronic fatigue syndrome here.

Epigenetic Memory

Epigenetic memory refers to the heritable genetic changes that are not explained by the DNA sequence. Find the latest research on epigenetic memory here.

Cell Atlas of the Human Eye

Constructing a cell atlas of the human eye will require transcriptomic and histologic analysis over the lifespan. This understanding will aid in the study of development and disease. Find the latest research pertaining to the Cell Atlas of the Human Eye here.

Femoral Neoplasms

Femoral Neoplasms are bone tumors that arise in the femur. Discover the latest research on femoral neoplasms here.

STING Receptor Agonists

Stimulator of IFN genes (STING) are a group of transmembrane proteins that are involved in the induction of type I interferon that is important in the innate immune response. The stimulation of STING has been an active area of research in the treatment of cancer and infectious diseases. Here is the latest research on STING receptor agonists.
