Allosteric enhancers at the adenosine A1 receptor have received attention as anti-arrhythmic cardiac agents, and, more recently, as anti-lipolytic agents. In addition, allosteric modulators at the adenosine A1 receptor have therapeutic potential as analgesics and neuroprotective agents. In particular, the compounds with improved potency as enhancers and reduced antagonist properties are mentioned.
