Discontinued Product

Unfortunately ANAVEX 2-73 (Cat. No. 5058) has been withdrawn from sale for commercial reasons.
Cat.No. 5058 - ANAVEX 2-73 | C19H23NO.HCl | CAS No. 195615-84-0
Description: Mixed σ1 and muscarinic receptor agonist; exhibits neuroprotective effects
Chemical Name: Tetrahydro-N,N-dimethyl-2,2-diphenyl-3-furanmethanamine hydrochloride
Purity: ≥98% (HPLC)

Biological Activity

σ1 agonist (IC50 = 860 nM); also displays affinity for muscarinic M1-M4 receptors (Ki values < 500 nM), but not for σ2 receptors. Exhibits neuroprotective effects, prevents tau hyperphosphorylation, and attenuates scopolamine- and (+)-MK 801-induced learning deficits in a mouse model of amyloid toxicity.
