A series of piperazinephen-1-ylehtylamines were synthesized and evaluated for their biological activity at the human melanocortin-4 receptor. This modification reduced the size and flexibility of the N-alkyl side-chain of some earlier lead compounds, while maintained the low nanomolar binding affinity.
