Chemical Name: 4a,5,9,10,11,12-Hexahydro-3-methoxy-11-methyl-6H-benzofuro[3a,3,2-ef][2]benzazepin-6-ol hydrobromide

Biological Activity

Long-acting, centrally active acetylcholinesterase inhibitor (IC50 = 410 nM) and allosteric potentiator at neuronal nicotinic ACh receptors. Prevents β-amyloid-induced apoptosis in SH-SY5Y and bovine chromaffin cells. Long-term administration reduces amyloid precursor protein deposition and neurodegeneration in a mouse model of Alzheimer's disease.

Technical Data
