Cat. No. 1518
Chemical Name: 3-[(2S)-2-Azetidinylmethoxy]-5-iodo
Biological ActivityA highly potent and subtype-selective agonist for the α4β2 and α6β2 nicotinic acetylcholine receptors. Activates α-CTx-MII-sensitive and -insensitive components of [3H]dopamine release from rat striatal synaptosomes, corresponding to α6β2 and α4β2 (EC50 values are 12.7 and ~35 nM respectively). ~5000- , 25000- and 140000-fold selective over α3β4, α7 and muscle nAChR receptors respectively. Precursor (Cat. No. 1527) also available.
