A 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.

Alzheimer's disease (AD) is a degenerative brain disease and the most common cause of dementia, affecting approximately 47 million people worldwide. Updated in 2015, this poster summarizes the structural and functional changes observed in the progression of this neurodegenerative disease, as well as classic AD drug targets.
Peripheral sensitization is the reduction in the threshold of excitability of sensory neurons that results in an augmented response to a given external stimulus. This poster outlines the excitatory and inhibitory signaling pathways involved in modulation of peripheral sensitization. The role of ion channels, GPCRs, neurotrophins, and cytokines in sensory neurons are also described.
