Comparative Molecular Field Analysis of Fenoterol Derivatives: A Platform Towards Highly Selective and Effective β(2)-adrenergic Receptor Agonists

The purpose of this study was to use a previously developed CoMFA model to design a series of new structures of high selectivity and efficacy towards the β(2)-adrenergic receptor.
Out of 21 computationally designed structures, 6 compounds were synthesized and characterized for β(2)-AR binding affinities, subtype selectivities and functional activities.
