BMS 182874 hydrochloride, is a synthetic compound that acts as a selective, potent, and competitive antagonist of endothelin A (ET-A) receptors. BMS 182874 exhibits a 1000-fold selectivity for ET-A over ET-B receptors. The compound is useful tool for understanding the role of endothelin in normal and disease conditions. BMS 182874 inhibits the binding of radioligand binding of ET-1 to ET-A receptors in rat vascular smooth muscle cell membranes with Ki of 61 nM and in Chinese ovary hamster cells with Ki of 48 nM1.
Endothelin receptors include two subtypes: ET-A and ET-B. They are widely distributed in vascular and nonvascular tissues. ET-A receptors are predominantly detected in peripheral tissues, especially in vascular smooth muscle tissues where they mediate vasoconstriction. They are also expressed in several different regions of the brain. ET-A receptor has high affinity for endothelin-1 and endothelin-2 and relatively low affinity for endothelin-3, while ET-B receptor has high affinity equally for all endothelin isopeptides2.
