Use of BD 1063 in mouse brain slices
By Jordan Yorgason on 01/05/2018
Assay Type: Ex Vivo
Species: Mouse
Cell Line/Tissue: C57

We used BD 1063 as a selective sigma antagonist to test if methamphetamine effects on dopamine release involved sigma receptor activation. BD 1063 (100nM) was applied before methamphetamine treatment. Drug was easy to use, and Tocris' recommendation on concentration for selectivity was useful for the study.
