Cat. No. 1603
Alternative Names: Colforsin dapropate hydrochloride, 6-(3-dimethylaminopropionyl)forskolin hydrochloride
Chemical Name: N,N-Dimethyl-(3R,4aR,5S,6aS,10S,10a
Biological ActivityWater-soluble analog of forskolin (Cat. No. 1099) that is a potent activator of adenylyl cyclase; shows some selectivity for cardiac (type V) adenylyl cyclase. Stimulates bronchodilation (EC50 = 32.6 nM) and is an orally active potent positive chronotrope and hypotensive agent in vivo. Also available as part of the PKA Tocriset™.
