Cat. No. 1497
Alternative Name: BW 234U
Chemical Name: 9-[3-(cis-3,5-Dimethyl-1-piperaziny
Biological ActivityAntagonist at σ receptors (IC50 values are 1480 and 386 nM at σ1 and σ2 receptors respectively). Also binds to the dopamine transporter (IC50 = 57.6 nM) and inhibits dopamine uptake. Reduces the stimulatory effects of cocaine in vivo.
