Potent and selective inhibitor of tryptophan 2,3-dioxygenase (TDO) (Ki = 51 nM). Exhibits no activity against indoleamine 2,3-dioxygenase, monoamine oxidase A and B, 5-HT uptake or 5-HT1A, 1D, 2A and 2C receptors. Produces large increases in brain tryptophan and serotonin in vitro and in vivo in the rat.

Literature in this Area
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.
Cancer Metabolism Poster
Adapted from the 2015 Cancer Product Guide, Edition 3, this poster summarizes the main targets for cancer metabolism researchers. Genetic changes and epigenetic modifications in cancer cells alter the regulation of cellular metabolic pathways. These distinct metabolic circuits could provide viable cancer therapeutic targets.
